  • Program Helps Inmates and Their Children Reconnect for Father’s Day

    Having a parent or family member in the corrections system is hard on everyone. For inmates and their family members it can be especially tough around the holidays. This week and weekend some programs are helping to connect families for Father’s Day by providing transportation to and from select California prisons. One in particular is the Get on The Bus program.

    On June 6th and June 14th, Get On The Bus, a local program that connects children with their parents serving time in prison, will bus over 330 children to San Quentin State Prison, Salinas Valley State Prison and the Correctional Training Facility to visit with their dads. Now in its 15th year, Get On The Bus provides transportation, lunch, and trained volunteers to accompany the children, plus a breakfast reception or a dinner reception provided by local community members who will be there to welcome them. In an effort to enhance public awareness of this unique program, the media is invited to cover these events between 8:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. inside the prisons.

    “Every child yearns to feel loved and connected to his or her parents. But children with parents in prison have a tough time keeping that connection,” says Sr. Suzanne Jabro, Founder and Executive Director of the program.

    Suzanne explained, “Get On The Bus offers these children the priceless chance for a father’s hug, a family photo, a private conversation.” Post-event counseling and a dinner for the return trip home are also provided. For many of these children, this will be the first time they’ve seen their fathers in many months.
