Truth Be Told is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit service organization located in Austin, Texas providing trauma-responsive programming for justice-involved women, disrupting cycles of incarceration.
Our prison, jail and reentry programs provide opportunities for personal growth and healing from past trauma through truth telling in safe communities. We offer four unique programs – all of which teach transformational tools of community building, communication skills, creativity and self-care.
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 programs teach what we call the 4 C’s. We believe this approach is effective in providing justice-involved women the tools they need to transform their lives.
