PROJECT RIDE FREE PROGRAM
Ride™ gives children visiting an incarcerated parent the opportunity to
ride with Family United Transportation Service for FREE! Why? Children
are the "Innocent" victims left behind. Studies show children with
incarcerated parents have psychological, social, and emotional
challenges in their lifetime. Bonding with the incarcerated parent
decreases challenges and allows for stronger family ties, reunification
during reentry process, and builds higher levels of self esteem for
children and their parents. It also allows for us to grant scholarships
for parents visiting an incarcerated child if they are committed to
volunteering with a local non profit.
*Some rules and restrictions may apply! Ask for details when making reservations.
