LIFE (Lifelong Information for Entrepreneurs) is a 32-week class started in 2007 with Coffee Creek Correctional Facility, Oregon’s women’s prison, to prepare women inmates (and by extended benefit their children) for successful reintroduction into their families, society and, should they choose, starting and succeeding in small business.
