Testimonials of Support

“None of this would have been possible without the help and support of the Texas Jail Project. If I had just told [my client] the date and time of the court date he would not have been able to attend. His family would have lost the money they had paid for his bond, and he would have a warrant for his arrest, while on an immigration bond.”

– Attorney of an Operation Lone Star client facing deportation. Due to Texas Jail Project’s direct aid support, light may be shed on the constitutional crisis occurring at our border

“I received advice and help from the Texas Jail Project. I honestly believe that if the staff did not step in to get our son moved to Vernon Hospital, he would be in the El Paso Jail. I am very grateful to have stumbled on to these wonderful ladies and for the help they gave us.”

– El Paso mother of son with a mental illness

“Without Texas Jail Project I would not have known how to navigate the confusing complaint process with the Texas Commission on Jail Standards and to advocate for my sister with State Representatives.”

-Sister of Fort Worth community member with an intellectual developmental disability who was hospitalized due to medical neglect in jail
