THE STORY:

Legal Services for Prisoners with Children wrote -

Next Trip: Mid December, 2016 or Early January, 2017

Close contact with loved ones is a vital part of supporting prisoner's well being and rehabilitation. However, due to logistic and financial barriers of travel, many families are unable to make regular visits to their incarcerated loved ones.

 

Since 2012, Dolores Canales and FamilyUNIty have been organizing periodic visits to Pelican Bay State Prison for families from all over California. Hundreds of people have been able to see their families, some for the first time in many years.

 

The program subsidizes bus transportation with pick ups in Southern California and the Bay Area,as well as lodging and meals. We provide logistical support for prison visits and have been able to host volunteer legal and medical advocates for families and take the children to visit the aquarium.

 

Your support is vital to the success of this amazing program. Without these trips, many families would be unable to ever visit their incarcerated loved ones.

 

The baseline cost of each weekend trip is $7000 which covers bus ($5000) and hotel ($2000). All of your donations go directly to supporting the families and children. Ideally our goal is to raise $10,000 to subsidize additional meals and activities, build our infrastructure and plan ahead for future visits.
