The Bail Project – San Marcos serves people incarcerated at the Hays County Jail in the District Court and County Courts-at-Law court systems. Additionally, our site in San Marcos serves people incarcerated at the Travis County Jail in the District and County Courts-at-Law court systems.
We began our work in San Marcos through a partnership with Mano Amiga, and we continue to work closely in collaboration with Mano Amiga to identify clients, direct them to holistic services once they’re released from jail, and push for pretrial justice in Central Texas.
The number of people incarcerated in Hays County more than doubled between 1970 and 2017.
