Our vision:

Our vision is for a York where everybody has a home, where those who have been homeless before are rebuilding their lives, and where the city works together to beat the underlying causes of homelessness.

 Our mission: 

We provide a loving space where lives can be restored. Everyone deserves a place they can call home, but society’s injustices can put unbearable financial and personal pressure on some people. Where that gets too much, and people have become homeless, Restore relieves the pressure. We provide safe and stable homes, one-to-one mentoring, love, mental health support, social activities and the offer of Christian support and prayer. Through our work, we also show that by easing the pressure that leads to homelessness, we can create a better society for all of us, freeing more people to achieve their full potential.

Restore works in partnership with Green Pastures Housing and other local landlords to lease and manage properties and provide support for it’s tenants so that having found a home they are also equipped to sustain their tenancy.

Restore currently has 8 houses which provide homes and support for up to 30 tenants. The support is provided by our housing support workers backed up by an administrator. Our development officer recruits and manages our team of volunteers and spearheads our fundraising events and grant applications.
