Project and Programs

Restoration Resource Center

This is a One-Stop-Shop which provides Life Skills Education, Mental Health, and Social Needs to empower and equip survivors with the skills and tools they may needed to build resilience for rehabilitation. We give survivors a voice to tell us what they need, and we align our services to their needs. Currently we have ongoing classes in Microsoft Certification and Financial Management. These classes are free and open to survivors, refugees and immigrants. Our goal is to provide tools for economic empowerment. To learn more, give us a call at: 702.907.1774

Job readiness: we provide trainings on how to write an attractive resume, preparing for job interviews, and back to work trainings.

Internship and apprenticeship placements available.

Mentoring/Support Group

This is a platform that connects MENTORS and MENTEES. It is a safe space where Survivors’ voices are heard, and they are given tools that build their resilience for transition to sustainable RESTORATION. We also provide skills for socio-economic empowerment.

This two-step plan includes;

Mentor-ship Group

We engage mentees in redefining issues with self-identity, and development of skills for self and social empowerment.

We give and equip mentees with tools for confronting societal stigmas and shame.
We introduce education as a key component to economic empowerment.
We patiently take survivors through the process of complete restoration into communal life.

Mentor

We train community members as volunteer mentors and pair them with survivors.

We engage mentors who commit to working with our girls for at least one year. This gives our girls enough time to build trusts in their mentors thus receive the desired empowerment for restoration.
We give our mentors on-going training which further ease their work as mentors with our girls.
We meet with mentors regularly to assess and discuss their relationships with the mentees and the effectiveness of the program.
