Helping hedge funders cope with prison | HedgeFund Intelligence

That's where Jeff Grant comes in. As founder and director of the Progressive Prison Project in Greenwich, Conn. and head of prison ministries of the First Baptist Church in nearby Bridgeport, Grant has devoted his life to helping prisoners. While he has focused on poor communities, Grant has increasingly worked with people accused of white collar crimes, including hedge fund managers, in learning to cope with life in prison.

Grant's advice comes from personal experience. In 2006, he was sent to a low security federal prison for 14 months after pleading guilty to federal criminal fraud charges. A corporate lawyer, Grant operated an office in Mamaroneck, New York. In the aftermath of September 11, 2001, he fraudulently claimed to have a Wall Street office that was hurt by a decline in business following the terrorist attacks in order to obtain a low-interest $247,000 loan under the U.S. Small Business Administration's Economic Injury Disaster Loan program (he repaid the government $365,000 as part of his civil settlement, including penalties).
Grant is writing a book entitled "The Art of Surviving Prison" due out this fall. Absolute Return asked him about his work and how it relates to the hedge fund community.
Absolute Return: How did you become involved in helping prisoners?
Grant: The most obvious answer is that I served time in Federal prison for a white-collar crime, and I had to work my way through my own feelings of shame and remorse. This put me in touch with others' feelings about these issues, too.

Jeff Grant - Assistant Pastor

I am so blessed that God has allowed me to serve in a way I truly love - serving people and working with families and their children. I first trusted the Lord Jesus as my Savior in 1999, however, I did not fully give my life over to the Lord until 2009. Since making the decision to let God rule my life and not trying to do everything my own way, He has been so very gracious to me and has blessed me tremendously with a job in ministry.
