Step by Step and Get on the Bus
Redlands United Church of Christ helped found and continues to support Step by Step a community coalition committed to the successful re-entry of parolees into Redlands, California. Founded in 2005, Step by Step has been providing a variety of supportive programs and services for parolees re-entering community life.
By providing a network of services to formerly incarcerated individuals and their families, parolees are given the potential opportunity to regain dignity, self-sustainability and respect. As a result, this can translate into a safer community, stronger families and supportive relationships between governmental agencies and the private community.
Redlands United Church of Christ helps provide gifts at Christmas time and supports the Get on the Bus program which brings children and their caregivers from throughout the state of California to visit their mothers & fathers in prison.
