Journal Entry: Lynnette Marie Jacobs-10/29/2023

Journal Entry

I am doing an extended stay by choice to finish an education program. I denied my halfway house by doing this took away my FSA, you earn FSA for programming……. very backward to take mine away for programming. But I’m not trying to complain I do want to say situations like this are happening for others here in different ways.

The federal government gave us the FSA program and the 2nd chance Act people here have earned these programs and are not being able to fully utilize these programs because we don’t have enough reentry staff to help this surge of people who have earned the time and can’t use the time.
