Get On the Bus is a program of the Center for Restorative Justice Works which brings children and their caregivers from throughout the state of California to visit their mothers & fathers in prison. This year, CCOP will sponsor four buses to four different correctional facilities throughout the state and will provide each child with a travel bag, including snacks, games, and other comfort items. They will also receive a photo with his or her parent, stationery items to keep in touch with them, and meals for the day. On the trip home, they also will receive a teddy bear with a letter from their parent.
If you would like to make a monetary donation to help offset the cost of the children participating, please contact Sharon Hanson in our Faith Formation Office at 925.474.2771.
