As the prices of gas, groceries and utilities continue to rise, it can be extremely difficult to save money. Despite these challenges, a determined ES participant reached her goal of saving $1,000 in the ES Matched Savings program!! Now, BCOC will match that savings so the participant will have $2,000 to go towards her auto expenses. One of BCOC's biggest goals is to increase the wealth of our participants. We are so #BCOCProud of this participant and the ES coach that helped her get here!!

April is #NationalSecondChance month, which allows time to reflect or highlight the opportunities being offered to those who have been incarcerated and are now returning back into society.

In 2020, BCOC piloted the Housing Opportunities for Re-entry Population (HORP) Program. Chris, BCOC's amazing Re-entry Stability Coach, discusses what that looks like here in Bucks County, take a look below!
