Who We Are

Truth Be Told is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit service organization providing transformational tools of community building, communication skills, creativity and self-care for women behind and beyond prison walls. The Truth Be Told headquarters is located in Austin, Texas.

Our prison and jail programs provide opportunities for personal and spiritual growth and healing from past trauma through truth telling in safe communities. We offer eight unique programs — all of which encourage compassion, trust-building, community, empathy, self-acceptance and forgiveness, and a greater sense of accountability for one’s life.

Our programs, designed by women for women, address a documented service gap in women’s correctional facilities for gender-responsive programs and practices. Our classes are facilitated by volunteer women who have experienced both literal and metaphorical “prisons” in their own lives and are willing and able to learn and grow alongside the women they serve.

Our Mission

Provide transformational programs through self-discovery for women who are or have been incarcerated resulting in increased self-worth, accountability, and positive contributions to society.

Our Vision

A society where all justice involved women are restored to integrity, thereby breaking the cycle of incarceration.
