The Dismas House in South Bend has an emergency need. Our house is 117 years old and we have a horrible bed bugs infestation. We have treated different rooms numerous times and now need to have a whole house treated where exterminators use major heat eliminate the bed bugs. However, the cost is $10,000 plus we would need to put the residents up in a hotel for a night. Our residents have awful bites all over their bodies. It's inhumane and we can't ask that are residents keep living in these conditions. We appreciate your support. Please make a donation and share the campaign with family and friends today.
MISSION STATEMENT: The mission of Dismas House is to bring about mutual reconciliation between former offenders and society through the development of a supportive community characterized by:
Students and former offenders living together in a family setting.
Active involvement of volunteers from the larger community.
A spirit of open and participative decision-making with an emphasis on the common good.
