From Our Chaplain at Western Mass
Women's Correctional Center
Prison Ministry Seeks Bus Passes
One would think that the day of release from jail would be a happy occasion. Sometimes it is. But, more often than not, release often means a life back on the streets or back in the environment which may have led to the incarceration in the first place.

One issue that is often problematic is that of transportation. Upon release, women often have follow-up appointments which have been scheduled by counselors or medical staff in the jail. But often times a woman may not have a way to get to an appointment or an interview. So here’s my request: if you would like to help women upon release from jail, it would be really helpful if we could have on hand some one day ($3.50) or seven day ($15) bus passes from the PVTA.

You can purchase these passes at your local Big Y and mail them to me at the jail:
Women’s Correctional Center
701 Center St.
Chicopee, MA 01013

Please know in advance how helpful and practical these passes will be for the women.

Thank you!
