Kentucky — operates 33 state and federal residential re-entry centers and support offices in 14 states. We serve as the primary re-entry point for over 8,000 men and women returning to society from state and federal prisons each year.
Dismas operates as Diersen Charities in New Mexico and Tennessee.
Crime is a community-wide problem. Therefore, our program involves experienced staff, families, faith-based institutions, employers, volunteers, and other service organizations to ensure successful re-integration of our residents. Our centers connect offenders with thousands of job opportunities every year. Those who would otherwise be confined to prison reside in our centers, where they work, provide valuable community service, and pay taxes, child support, fines, or other restitution.
Dismas Charities provides quality, cost-effective, community-based supervision and support services while focusing on Healing the Human Spirit. We believe all individuals are entitled to be treated with respect and compassion.
