When a person exits a life of abuse, they have few, if any, possessions. Even with the promise of freedom, it is a frightening and confusing time. We seek to help ease the process of restoration as much as we can by providing counseling, comfort, and skills that can assist with the transition to a new life.

Our supporters stand at the center of every level of our restoration work. We would not be able to continue in this crucial work if it were not for your support. Thank you.
