Make a Financial Investment

The impact from The Restoration House program is made possible solely by the financial investments from individual donors and private organizations. By becoming a financial partner of The Restoration House, you are making a long-term investment in the lives of single mothers and their children.

There are four specific funds you can invest in that will help change the future for single-mother families.  If you should have any questions about these funds please contact us.

1. Unrestricted Operations Fund: As a financial partner, you can invest in the overall program by supporting our Unrestricted Operational Fund. This helps cover the full breadth of support families have access to along their journey toward restoration.  We are proud that 80 cents of every dollar invested, directly impacts single mothers and their children.

3. Scholarship & Educational Expense Funds: At The Restoration House we are helping low-income single-mother family’s change their futures not just manage their present. A key indicator of any single parent’s ability to become self-reliant is the level of education she has obtained and the job opportunities that education provides. There are two ways you can help a single mother change and her children’s future through education.

Consider investing in The Restoration House Internal Scholarship & Educational Expense Fund. 100% of these funds go directly toward the cost of education for single mothers to pay for tuition, books, supplies.  In some case moms can apply a portion of the scholarship funds to cost-of-living expenses while they are in school. Moms must apply to a Scholarship Review Committee staffed by the board of directors and staff liaison. In 2012, Johnson University established The Watson Restoration House Scholarship Fund, in honor of The Restoration House and its cofounders, Daniel and Mandy Watson. Scholarships from this fund can be awarded to current or past participants in The Restoration House program who enroll at Johnson University in pursuit of a post-secondary degree.

4. Endowment Fund: Sustainability is the key to the long-term impact of any non-profit organization. The Restoration House is incredibly grateful for a very generous local investor who has started The Restoration House Endowment which is held at the East Tennessee Foundation.  By making an investment in this endowment you are ensuring The Restoration House is able to help single mother families break the cycle of poverty long into the future.
