ABOUT RESTORATION VILLAGE

A neighborhood unlike any other in the nation for those coming out of incarceration

Restoration Village is a unique housing community located in Wellford, South Carolina and is designed to provide a safe and supportive environment for men and women who are returning from incarceration. This community is more than just a place to live; it is a place where residents will have access to a range of resources and services aimed at helping them successfully reintegrate into society. Along with affordable housing, Restoration Village offers on-site case management, life skills training, job readiness classes, and access to healthcare services. Additionally, residents can participate in recreational activities, attend support groups, and receive mentoring from volunteers. The goal of Restoration Village is to empower individuals to break the cycle of recidivism and achieve long-term success.
