Our Mission

The Restoration House (TRH) helps restore single mothers and their children back to God’s good intent for their lives. Through supportive transitional housing, ally teams, and family advocacy, TRH walks alongside low-income single-mother families, helping them break harmful cycles and regain hope and a future.

At its core, The Restoration House believes that God intended for us to live in community. Further, God desires for all of humanity to be restored in four key relationships – with God, Self, Others and Creation. In support of this, TRH is building The Village, a community in which single-mother families develop supportive relationships and find healing, stability and restoration as they build a brighter future.

Life’s Four Key Relationships

God – Our relationship with God is the central relationship that affects all others.
Self – God desires for us to view ourselves as He does, as created by Him and in His own image.
Others – God desires for us to love our neighbors as ourselves.
Creation – God desires for us to act responsibly toward His creation; He calls us to be good stewards of all that He gives us.

Our Values

Restoration – We value God’s desire for the complete restoration of all people
Community – We value community, as demonstrated in God’s nature, life is less than what it could or should be when life is lived alone
Reciprocity – We value reciprocity, because everyone should have the chance to work for their future
Dignity – We value dignity, because being created in the image of God all are deserving of dignity
Collaboration – We value partnership and cooperation over duplication and competition
