For the formerly incarcerated , having a place to stay in a supportive environment is the first step toward successful re-entry to society. Having a home, and not just a house, can make all the difference.
Upon their release, offenders who have been carefully screened, live at Dismas House as they transition back into the community.
Here, they find a safe haven and a family-like atmosphere amid college students, staff and many volunteers who become part of their daily lives.
Typically, residents live for 4-6 months in Dismas House, which is built on a framework of support, self-sufficiency and personal accountability. Professional caseworkers help to match them with resources to meet each person’s unique needs. For their part, residents stay for a minimum of 90 days, uphold positive standards of living, participate in a holistic programming model, are active members of the household and broader community, and pay a modest program fee.
