The most recent session of the BBA’s Community Reentry
Readiness Program was held on Wednesday at the US District Courthouse and
tackled the topic of credit reports and scores. As our members know, this pilot
program is has been spearheaded the BBA’s
Public Interest Leaders
in an effort
to ease some of the major civil legal barriers that often hinder probationers
reentry of into society. PILP’s Brendan St. Amant (Donnelly, Conroy &
Gelhaar, LLP), led the session which outlined practical tips for building
credit, obtaining credit reports, and disputing credit reports. With nearly 20
probationers in attendance, this presentation was a huge hit. PILP’s Raquel
Webster will deliver the next presentation on Wednesday, September 7th.
