Christine Angelo was going to be released from prison soon, after serving a combined three-year sentence for grand larceny and a probation violation. She was nervous and sometimes overwhelmed by all the things she knew she had to do when she went home, including dealing with her probation officer, finding a job, taking care of her two small children, and paying her court fines and restitution. Many of her wrong choices had revolved around money; there had never seemed to be enough to cover all her bills. She wanted to learn how to create a budget and manage her money better, and to have a plan in place before she was released. She sought out help from a woman in her building who had been a financial planner, and then took the prison's money management class.
