Dismas is the name of the thief on the cross who asked Jesus to remember him in his dying hour. Father Dismas Clark, nicknamed the Hoodlum Priest, launched the first Dismas House in St. Louis, Missouri. Dismas House of Kansas City was incorporated in 1972, founded by Father Jim Flanagan and Rev. Everett Thornton. Over the last 51years, Dismas House has served thousands of men and women rebuild their lives and their families.
Today, there are independent Dismas Houses across the United States and in Ireland.
The guiding principle remains that “It’s Never Too Late to Change.”
