2018: The Year in Numbers

“I need you to know that being part of the Truth Be Told community has been LIFE CHANGING!”

This artwork and quote come straight from the heart of Samantha, who participated in our Talk to Me Movement program at Lockhart women’s prison this past spring. She then returned in the fall to serve as a classroom mentor, supporting her peers as they learned how to embody and share the story of what they believe put them on a path to prison.

Healing through truth-telling. That’s what Truth Be Told is all about, and it changes lives — one woman, one story, at a time.

Because you, like Samantha, choose to be in community with Truth Be Told, we experienced growth in EVERY program in 2018, serving more than 1,000 justice-involved women and adding two new programs.
