About Us

For over 30 years, Dismas House has been a beacon of hope for former prisoners in greater Worcester, providing an important platform for healthy reentry from prison to those most in need of recovery, decent work, and housing. Dismas’ trademark family-style atmosphere creates the right environment for former prisoners to successfully become whole with our communities. A small, but dedicated staff, interns from area colleges, and committed community volunteers join with former prisoners as they work to rebuild their lives. A blend of foundation support, a small amount of government funding, and private donations help sustain Dismas programs.

We rely on the community for support – for everything from grocery cards, to towels, toiletries, and sheets. And we need volunteers from the community to share meals at our programs, volunteer as a mentor, and help in our fundraising and awareness efforts. We hope you might become the newest member of the Dismas Family!
