The Little Bus That Could

The Little Bus That Could is a program to help incarcerated mothers build relationships with their children prior to their release. The bus makes trips at least three times a year (Mother’s Day, Back–to–School, and Christmas), and mainly transports children to Eleanor Chase Work Release, but allows space for those going to Airway Heights. This program is free and approved volunteers are available to pick guests up at their home. All food, sleeping bags, activities, and charter buses are provided.
