Our History

In 1990, Phyllis P. McNeal, MSW, established Straight Talk Program, Inc. in Inglewood, California. The program puts ex-offenders before audiences of students and other citizens where they discuss the choices that led to their incarceration.

Since then, the program has served hundreds of ex-offenders and has received state and nationwide recognition for its two primary goals:

  • Providing a venue for ex-offenders to give back to the community it wronged; and
  • Providing intervention, deterrent, and prevention services for at-risk youth who are making choices that will eventually lead to their own incarceration.
