Host Jeremy C. Park talks with Kay Kretsch, CEO of Dismas House in Nashville, Tennessee, who discusses their Tennessee Department of Correction (TDOC) approved residential reentry program that serves men returning to the community directly from all state correctional facilities for men and county jails throughout Tennessee. The nonprofit’s goal is to support these men as they navigate the challenging transition from prison back to the community and help them overcome the many barriers to successful reentry. During the interview, Kay talks about their “Four Pillars of Programming,” what makes their programs successful, their growth and development with a new campus, their larger impact in the community, the importance of their work, how the community can support their efforts and more.
