Uptrust

  • San Francisco, CA, USA

Uptrust is an innovative public benefit corporation supporting criminal justice reform. We’ve built the leading communication platform for helping people to successfully navigate the criminal legal system in both pretrial and post-incarceration situations. Our tools are already supporting more than 500,000 low-income individuals in 100+ jurisdictions across the United States. Uptrust helps reduce jail populations, allowing more citizens to live free and productive lives. Additionally, we are uniquely committed to never charging and never geolocating our users.

Uptrust is currently a team of 14, distributed coast-to-coast in the US, with plans to continue growing throughout 2021. In addition to supporting work from home and flexible working hours, we also have offices in San Francisco and Northampton, MA. 

Uptrust is backed by several leading national foundations and investors and has received press from media outlets such as TechCrunch, the Associated Press, The New York Times, and the ABA Journal. Unlike many tiny startups, we already have six-figure ARR as well as near- and long-term plans for product and revenue expansion.
