RESTORING HOPE & CHANGING LIVES
Room for Restoration is a non profit that provides an avenue for connection and restoration between incarcerated fathers and their children. We do this by providing the opportunity for fathers to nominate their children for a Dream Room Makeover. A gift in the name of the father. This opens a door for communication and healing. While not focusing on the past, the child feels acknowledged and important in the present; while the father learns more about his child. To start, a father submits a nomination application for their child.* They simply tell their story. If we could help everyone we would, but when a circumstance stands out as a perfect fit for what we do, we step in. The family is notified of the selection and the room redesign is scheduled. When the work is completed, the new room is revealed to the child. This is a rewarding and emotional experience for all involved. A recent child expressed being overwhelmed by his father’s understanding of who he was. The seeds of forgiveness, the opportunity for healing was sewn.
