Most means of financial support for the homeless, like recyclables or even small odd jobs, have been eliminated through this Covid-19 pandemic, as well as some funding curtained due to government offices being closed. By the way, Contra Costa County has no homeless feeding programs and the churches and individuals who formerly periodically fed the homeless have stopped doing so.
Our business plan is to raise $70,000 to quickly reach the homeless community with meals and other services – but especially with hope through building relationships from caring volunteers. RESTORE plans to launch a Mobil Truck “More than a Meal” Outreach Program.
Please help us Bridge the Gap with your financial contribution for those who are hardest impacted by the COVID-19 shelter in place: Bridge the Gap
RESTORE exists to transform the lives of the addicted poor
In America 23 million suffer from alcohol and drug addiction. At RESTORE we care for those that are addicted AND homeless, or have lost their job, the ones with no insurance, who have no way to pay the cost of a pricey treatment center, but still desire to break free from addiction. And with your help, we are seeing the forgotten in our community find sobriety and become self-sufficient!!

More Than a Meal Fundraiser
You can be a part of helping Restore provide much needed meals to our homeless neighbors. There are very limited resources here in Contra Costa County; with a food truck we can help them experience Jesus' love right where they're at, and provide jobs for our residents. Please consider a generous gift to help us buy the truck.
As a young child, I was adopted by a wonderful family who have loved and supported me throughout my journey. At an early age, I struggled from an addiction and my life gradually spiraled out of control. When my beautiful baby girl was born, Child Family Services immediately came and took her from me. This was so hard and deep inside I was determined to seek recovery! I graduated from a 90-day program and miraculously, was able to get into the RESTORE Women’s Home. I finally felt safe and my daughter and I had a place to call HOME! The other mothers in the home soon became family to me.
Early at RESTORE, I found out about Jesus and His love for me and started attending church regularly. I gave my life to Christ and was baptized! I have been employed at a nearby Hallmark store since 2017. Child Family Services closed my case and my daughter is fully reunified to me – for which I praise God!
I was able to move into my own home in 2019! I am enjoying my new life and look forward to all that God has for our family in the future!
Kelly and Daughter
I started using drugs when I was 11 years old. When I was 30, I hit bottom when Child Family Services took my one years old daughter from me. I immediately entered a recovery program and graduated, but was frightened because I had no safe place to live for my next step. Miraculously, RESTORE’s doors opened and I moved into the Women’s Aftercare Recovery Home. This is where I first heard about Jesus Christ. More and more I opened my heart and life to Christ and allowed Him to change me completely. There was so much of the Presence of God in this home. We prayed together, studies the Bible together and I made dear friends who walked beside me through tough times and good times. I was able to clear the wreckage from my past! It was 14 months before Child Family Services finally allowed me to have my daughter back into my care.
My life is so blessed today. In May 2019, my daughter and I rented our first ever home! I am a manager at a local Burger King. I am working on getting my AA in Business Management. God is so good to me and I look forward to my future and raising my daughter in a Christian home, where we read the Bible and pray together!
"I needed this. To be in a place where everyone understands and supports each other. It’s a place where people actually care about you, I’ve never really experienced that before in my life.”
Jeff, Resident of RESTORE
“I never, in my entire life, experienced such love and support as I have since coming to RESTORE. I had been an alcoholic for 30+ years and lost everything, I was living on the streets, but they brought me in and treated me like family. I’m now 2 years clean and sober and I haven’t looked back.”
Ted, Graduate of RESTORE
