What is Re-entry?

Dismas House is the power of community at work. With the support of funders, volunteers, and partner businesses, we are the first critical step for former offenders in healing and learning. We know that with a safe, loving, nonjudgmental, and accountable place to call home, these men and women are more likely to successfully rebuild their lives.

Those re-entering society after incarceration face many barriers. In addition to a loving and supportive home, we provide holistic, client-specific services that empower self-sufficiency. Our program encourages residents to build a positive support system, address addictive behaviors and other medical concerns, achieve financial stability, and secure long-term housing so they will depart Dismas with a greater sense of community, self-worth, and an optimistic outlook.
