Operation Restoration supports women and girls impacted by incarceration to recognize their full potential, restore their lives, and discover new possibilities.


We provide a community where impoverished women and girls have access to the basic fundamentals they need to successfully reenter into society after incarceration.  We focus on engaging with those most in need of relief from emotional and mental distress and support their initiative and strength while helping them to recognize their full potential, restore their lives and discover new possibilities.
