General Information:

Dismas House was created in 1994 as an answer to the growing need for supportive services for individuals struggling to re-enter society after spending time in prison/jail. Since that time, Dismas House has developed an effective residential program that provides a comprehensive matrix of services for adults returning to the community after incarceration.

Dismas House currently owns a three-acre campus comprised of 5 residential buildings that provide 90-120 days of service-enriched housing for 16 residents. We also have a women’s campus that houses 6 residents. We serve 100 to 125 residents annually.

In March 2013, Dismas House merged with St. Martin’s Hospitality Center.

The Dismas House Transitional Program is a structured 90-day, progress-oriented curriculum that moves its residents through a series of supportive steps that assist in a successful re-entry into society.

The first step in the program includes a detailed orientation and intake process that define Dismas House’s supportive services. This process is supplemented by a series of workshops, group counseling, and case management sessions. The program also provides job development support, life skills, housing development, family counseling, and after-care plans.

Dismas House Transitional Re-Entry Program consists of the following elements:

-An in-depth intake;
-Education into the nature of addictions, including the long-term health effects of substance use on the mind and body;
-Relapse prevention;
-12-Step, Alcoholics Anonymous, and Narcotics Anonymous support groups;
-Motivational counseling group sessions geared toward encouraging pro-social attitudes, behaviors and responsibilities;
-Individualized case management that includes educational opportunities, job development, life skills, housing options, family counseling and health-care referrals;
-After-care services provide graduating residents with the support system needed to maintain meaningful employment and ultimately provide graduating residents a place in society that is peaceful and productive.
