NASHVILLE, TN – Dismas House of Nashville, one of the largest residential reentry programs in Tennessee, hosted its second in-person Father Jack Hickey Circle of Grace Reception and Open House on Thursday, August 11 at its 2424 Charlotte Avenue location.
The open house and reception celebrated the newest members of the Father Jack Hickey Circle of Grace. This society is reserved for those who give $1,000 or more in a fiscal year to the agency.
This year’s special honorees recognized for their generous giving efforts to support Dismas House were Lori Bell, senior interior designer of EOA Architects, who oversaw the vision of the campus’s interior; Steve Cook of LFM Capital and current Dismas House board chair; David Hart, CEO of TRICOR (Tennessee Rehabilitative Initiative in Correction) and chair of the agency’s Program Committee; and Phil Ryan of VILLAGE Real Estate, who was instrumental in finding the current Dismas House location and finding a buyer for the existing Music Row property.
Dismas House, whose mission is to improve lives and strengthen communities by providing the formerly incarcerated with holistic reentry programming that breaks the cycle of incarceration, invited guests to tour the campus and meet residents during the event.
