About Dismas House of Nashville

Location:

2424 Charlotte Avenue, Nashville, TN 37203, US

Mission Statement

The mission of Dismas House is to improve lives and strengthen communities by providing the formerly incarcerated with holistic reentry programming that breaks the cycle of incarceration.

Description

Dismas House is an approved Tennessee Department of Correction (TDOC) residential reentry program in Nashville that serves men returning to the community directly from all state correctional facilities for men and county jails throughout Tennessee. The minimum length of stay to complete the Dismas House Reentry Program is 90 days. Our goal is to support these men as they navigate the challenging transition from prison back to the community and help them overcome the many barriers to successful reentry. We provide our residents with a uniquely warm and family-like atmosphere, in addition to a comprehensive selection of services we cluster under the umbrella of our "Four Pillars of Programming," which are 1) basic needs, 2) health and well-being, 3) life skills, and 4) legal support.
