  • We strive to keep families intact by providing secure and comfortable housing in a hotel-style setting. Each family is assigned their own, lockable unit consisting of a main living area and full bathroom.
  • Rooms come furnished and equipped with linens, a television, a full size refrigerator, microwave, and a crock pot.
  • Residents are expected to keep their units clean and presentable. Units are inspected by staff regularly.
  • On-site laundry facilities are provided for $1 per load.
  • All residents have access to Restoration’s large, on-site shared-use kitchen, which consists of four stoves and ovens, cookware, and six dining room tables and chairs.
  • Restoration also provides residents with an on on-site, supervised nursery facility. The 520 square foot space comfortably houses the toys and equipment needed for birth through age five.
  • A teen center is available to teenaged residents during supervised hours. The space includes a refreshment area, arcade games, comfortable seating, and a wall-mounted television.
  • A playground structure is available to provide exercise and entertainment to Restoration’s youngest residents. The mulched site is conveniently located next to the Resident Inn and includes climbing equipment, a slide, swings, and a sheltered picnic area. A basketball hoop is nearby.
  • It costs $750 per month to house a family and cover their participation in our Transitional Housing Program.
  • Our program participants are required to pay a $50 per month program fee and work 15 hours per week in assigned duties to help offset that cost.
  • We average 105 resident participants and children each month in our 74 room Inn.
  • Average length of stay at our facility is 11 months.
  • The playground outside the facility was donated and built by the Lutheran Church of Mahomet to help the children at Restoration enjoy their stay with us. A small laundry facility is provided for families to clean their clothes.
  • A small teen recreation center is open when staffing is available.
