Reason to Support? It costs the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) $50.04 per day to house incarcerated women. Women who have participated in Truth Be Told programs are less likely to return to prison after being released. According to TDCJ records, 86.2% of our graduates remain free three years after completing their sentences, which beats the state’s track record and saves the state nearly $1 million in incarceration costs over that three-year period. This is a conservative estimate that does not account for the positive socioeconomic contributions of our graduates who are back in society, raising their children and working.
Will your contribution be tax-deductible? Yes. Truth Be Told is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
