IBS is very pleased to announce we received a significant grant from the California Department of Corrections to expand our program to 4 additional prisons — Deuel, Avenal, Mule Creek and California Health Care Facility (a medical prison). We are very grateful to our San Diego volunteers, Sue and Andy, who wrote the grant application and are now helping to administer it. This grant shows the State of California understands and values the service we are providing to inmates, both during their incarceration and after their release. None of our Dharma brothers who were released have returned to prison. The grant covers our expenses to these 4 prisons for one year. After that, we will continue to need support from our IBS contributors. Many thanks to all of you who are helping us bring the Dharma to the inmates in California.
