Our Mission

Another Chance. A Fresh Start. Across the state, Dismas of Vermont homes provide shelter and support to men and women making the difficult transition from incarceration to new lives. Join us in our mission of reconciling prisoners to society and society to prisoners. Create a more just, safe, and productive Vermont.
