Focus on: Resettlement

Description:

On this particular experience, our focus is on resettlement for previously incarcerated individuals. We will be supporting Dismas House, an organization which helps individuals transition back into society after being incarcerated. Dismas House provides support for the residents to reach their goals through education, housing, counseling, and food resources in a loving and supportive setting. We will have the opportunity to work as a group renovating rooms, painting, landscaping, and assisting with meals for the residents. We will also work with the agency to make items for sale such as jewelry and different carpentry projects.

While in South Bend we will spend our free time becoming acquainted with the area by experiencing local activities and touring Notre Dame's beautiful campus.
