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 need 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 under our Skills Development Program. These classes are free and open to survivors, refugees and immigrants. Our goal is to provide tools for economic empowerment.
