What We Do

Help the formerly incarcerated transform their lives by offering them a safe, nurturing environment called Dismas Homes

Collaborate with colleges and universities, not-for-profit organizations, community and civic organizations, experts, and volunteers to provide the formerly incarcerated with the best opportunities to succeed in their transition back to society in a structured, accountable environment.

Save the taxpayers of New Hampshire significant tax dollars annually by reducing recidivism.

Keep families intact by providing hope, dignity, and support to their loved ones.

Work closely with federal, state, and local correctional authorities and agencies to navigate the challenges of reentry into society.
