Get Involved!

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 absent fathers to nominate their children for a Dream Room Makeover.  This gift in the name of the father opens a door for communication, validation and healing.   Through RFR and CDCR,  fathers receive the opportunity to  submit a nomination application for their child.*  They simply tell their story and 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; a visual reminder that sometimes things that are broken, can still be restored.  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.

We custom design each child's dream room with their unique interest's in mind. Most items in the room are customer designed by our team or up cycled to make their new room like no other!


When we are called to help families that are geographically too far away for us to do a full room makeover, we put together what we call a "Bedroom in a Box." This box (it more often a few boxes), contains all of the fun a new custom room needs!


* Disclosure on legality: All proper clearances are secured by the prison to make sure the father selected can legally participate in the program. If there are court orders for no contact, for example, the inmate cannot be selected. We work closely with the penal administration to adhere to all regulations and guidelines. Our activities are completely transparent. Our aim is to become a resource opportunity for existing parenting programs for inmates statewide.
