In August of 2013, TRH broke ground on Phase 1 of The Village, a restorative community that will ultimately include 24 units and a community center for low-income single-parent families working to break the cycle of poverty.
Phase 1 of The Village was completed in June 2015 and includes:
- six single-family housing units
- a community center with a large meeting room, kitchen, computer lab, toddler playroom, elementary classroom, teen room, and offices for staff of The Restoration House staff, and Emerald Youth Foundation
- a playground, basketball court, and community garden
- utility infrastructure for the remaining 18 units.
The property adjacent to The Village, owned by co-founders Daniel and Mandy Watson, offers two additional housing units for a current total of eight.
