History

Restoration House (RH) was incorporated as a California Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation on October 28, 2002, and received IRS 501(c)(3) status as a public charity on March 13, 2003. We leased our facility from our sister corporation, RH Foundation, in October 2003, and welcomed our first two residents on December 30, 2003.  In July, 2015, we leased our second facility to increase our total capacity to thirteen men.

In 2015, RH entered into a networking partnership with The Eternity Challenge (TEC) based in Rocklin. TEC provides financial and administrative support to RH. It also provides services to inmates and parolees, as well as sober living housing, through its own programs. (www.theeternitychallenge.com)

Since the program’s inception (14 years in 2016), more than 150 men have been served by RH. The average stay is 6-9 months. In general, we consider three months the minimum time to adequately complete the program.
