Default Corrections, Chowchilla Family Express Set Second Round of Free Bus Rides for Childre


Program Served Nearly 1,600 Children, Family Members in First Six Months
CHOWCHILLA – Busloads of children, their caregivers and other family members continue to arrive at the two women’s prison in Chowchilla every Sunday, thanks to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) and the Chowchilla Family Express. The second round of the weekly program began last month to help female inmates and their families remain connected during incarceration. The program sends an average of six buses each month from northern and southern California. The first round of scheduled bus trips ended Sept. 30, and the new schedule runs through June 2008. Since the program began on March 25, 2007, 1,581 children and adults have participated.

Funded by the CDCR with a $400,000 annual budget, the bus program brings children to their parents housed in Valley State Prison for Women (VSPW) and Central California Women’s Facility (CCWF) from various parts of California. The program recognizes how valuable family reunification is to the welfare of children and the eventual post-prison success of inmates.
