|About Dismas House South Bend|
The South Bend, Indiana, Dismas House was organized through the efforts of a task group of the United Religious Community of St. Joseph County (URC). URC volunteers were involved in a visitation program, Inmate-Outmate, at the IN State Prison in Michigan City, IN. Through their prison ministry they discovered that there was a great need for a safe place for offenders to go upon their release. They were interested in opening a half way house. Carol Gayles, a student from the University of Notre Dame, completed a summer internship at the Nashville Dismas House. She linked the URC task group to the national office of Dismas, Inc.
