Dismas House started in 1986 and for over 30 years now has helped our community and people seeking aid to become reintroduced to the community better achieve this sometimes difficult and overbearing ordeal for certain individuals from a variety of backgrounds. Dismas has helped more than a thousand people in their journeys back to society and with the help of various other local, governmental, and justice entities/business we have been able to provide a home for the 15 (max.) residents our home allows us assist. We accept men and women who have been released from incarceration to receive the benefits our home has to offer and start to establish a relationship with the community through a variety of programs and events we host. These programs for the residents included group meetings, weekly family dinners, substance abuse, and other health related sessions. The events we host include a variety of community events to allow them to interact with the community in a welcoming environment with our staff, past residents, and their family members.

While the people we are able to help are truly special and unique individuals who want to move on past their regrettable mistakes we at Dismas rely solely on the community and other foundation/grants to maintain the services our residents need. We do not receive any state or federal funding.. So the past thirty years we have relied primary on our community to provide our funds. With this page we are hoping to give our community, past, present, or those who believe the work we do is worth giving to make the donations we greatly need electronically at one convenient site.
