Texas Incarcerated Families Association

TIFA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit. Our mission is to serve people in Texas prisons through education,  advocacy, and organizing.  We provide our members with the information and resources they need to navigate Texas’s prison system.

We advocate for greater opportunities for currently and formerly incarcerated people.  We work with state officials and other criminal justice reform organizations to improve the conditions of prisons, probation, and parole.

You are not alone

We know what you are going through. Most of us have been where you are now, overwhelmed by all that is happening and fearful for the safety of our loved ones . . . shock, despair, confusion. Losing someone to the system is very much like death. We grieve the loss of that person in our daily lives and the loss of all our hopes and dreams for a future with that loved one. You do not have to go through this alone.



Advocating for you

The Texas Incarcerated Families Association advocates for our members to the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) and the Texas Legislature.
