Family ties: Get On The Bus brings kids, incarcerated parents together

Josh Walton, incarcerated at High Desert State Prison, acted quickly when his young daughters’ pent-up enthusiasm began bursting over and they started chattering loudly and squirming about. But he didn’t look annoyed at all. Walton doesn’t get many chances to be an in-person dad alongside his wife, Christin. That’s why the Get On The Bus (GOTB) program is so important to him and his family, as it offers families the opportunity to spend a whole day with their incarcerated loved ones, at no expense to the families.
