Transitional Living is provided for women that need some support while they are equipping themselves to live on their own. We give them a place to stay at low cost while they establish funds for first and last months rent.
Restoration House gives women a safe place to belong in a community setting. Here women are encouraged to work together building healthy relationships and take full advantage of the programs at Restoration House. Our Staff is very supportive while mentoring women through practical life skills. These skills equip each woman to achieve growth and maturity for a successful path to recovery and healthy independent living. Read More about Transitional Living.
