The “Get on the Bus” program, which focuses on bringing children and their guardians/caregivers throughout California to visit their mothers and fathers in prison, found 240 participating at the Correctional Training Facility.

Get on the Bus offers a no-cost opportunity to more than 1,300 underserved children statewide to take part in this annual event.

Local churches and other organizations volunteer and donate funds to help sponsor these opportunities for families to reconnect and deepen their family ties.  The children are filled with joy and hope during their visits with their parents.
