What We Do
Dismas emphasizes the importance of family. Every Monday through Thursday, we gather as a family for the evening meal at 6:30, which is prepared by local volunteers who break bread with our residents. Additionally, Dismas helps reconcile former offenders with society by welcoming both college students and former offenders as residents. These residents live, work, and interact with one
Dismas cannot work without the support of its incredible volunteer base. Hundreds of volunteers prepare meals throughout the year and Keenan Hall, from the University of Notre Dame, spend one night a week each to prepare the meal at our house.
