In 2014 you helped us serve women in four prisons and our county jail. Our semester-long prison programs graduated 152 women. More than 200 women participated in jail classes. Hundreds more attended holiday performances of God in Human Form and monthly Exploring Creativity Workshops. We were able to employ an executive director; revamp our website; upgrade our database and case management software; and engage in a program evaluation. We received four grants and were inspired by your support during Amply Austin, our 2014 Pledge Drive and #GivingTuesday.
Sara Hickman, Sarah Alarcon, Greg Downing, Lynn Kindler, & Simcha Reader’s Group lifted eighty-six hearts with song, slam poetry, laughter, and story telling at the
GEO Lockhart Facility 14th annual God in Human Form Performance.
Dara Musick graduated with honors from ACC and as the recipient of the Presidential Student Achievement Award, gave an inspiring speech at commencement. Dara continues to give back by sharing her story behind bars, bringing hope to women who have walked her walk. Read more about Dara.
Conspirare & Ruthie Foster lifted hearts and released healing tears in a most moving performance at the Travis County Correctional Facility. Ninety women along with volunteers and staff, including Sheriff Hamilton, were inspired and left with glistening cheeks and humbled hearts.
Please remember Truth Be Told as you consider your end of giving.
