Volunteer with Get on the Bus.

Get on the Bus offers free transportation for the children and their caregivers to visit family members in prison. Each child is provided a travel bag, a photo with his or her parent, and meals for the day.

Start or Join a Restorative Justice Committee.

Your church can be an agent for change in your parish and community. If there is no RJ Committee now, we can help you start one. You can support victims of crimes, their families, and families of the incarcerated who may be sitting next to you in worship and live next door.
