A Message From Dismas Charities President/CEO


There is a timeless energy that lives within the soul of our programs. It is centered in love, forgiveness and justice like our founder Father William Diersen inspired. It is strengthened by community partnerships, education, employment, and the simplest acts of kindness and generosity of spirit. It is a good listener and understands capabilities. It is structure and guidance. It is awareness of responsibility and endears itself to self respect. It is people like you and me reaching out to help heal those in need. It is a driving force for us to continue our research and discussions to provide the best quality of service possible. It is pride and respect for over 7,200 men and women who are served annually by Dismas Charities programs, 80% of whom have successfully completed and returned home. Through the sharing of stories we are reminded of the resilience of the human spirit, the power of compassion, and the rewards of achievement. As we begin our 51st year of service and prepare to open our 30th center of operations, there is no better time than the present to recognize the timeless energy that is the guiding light of Dismas.
