Volunteer with Dismas
As integral members of our community, volunteers play a hands-on role in Dismas House’s operations — and in helping our residents become productive citizens again. Every day, you’ll find them here, cooking dinner, helping residents with job placement, and offering counsel and friendship.
Hire a Dismas Resident
The most difficult job faced by former offenders can be finding one. Because so many employers will not consider hiring someone with a criminal record, the obstacles faced by former offenders attempting to become productive members of society are especially daunting. It’s one reason why, around the country, so many end up back in prison.
We work to break the cycle with the help of employers that have learned from experience that giving a job to a former offender is about reconciliation as well as being a business decision that benefits all concerned.
