Support Dismas House

Dismas House’s impact is made possible by your generosity. Thank you for helping us restore lives and communities through holistic reentry services for returning citizens.



2024 Forgiveness Gala

To commemorate Dismas House’s 50th anniversary this year, our signature annual event, traditionally held as a luncheon, will be transformed into an elegant evening gala. The Forgiveness Gala, taking place on September 21 from 7-10 PM, will be an event unlike any year prior. Held at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel, guests will enjoy an evening of celebration while raising vital funds to support Dismas House’s mission and holistic reentry services. The Forgiveness Gala promises to be an unforgettable evening, honoring the legacy of Dismas House and the changemakers who have been instrumental in shaping our 50-year legacy.
