Support Operation Restoration

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

We believe all women deserve the chance to restore their lives and discover new possibilities. We focus on achieving successful reentry through the advancement of education and the promotion of social reintegration tools including employment training and opportunities, through access to activities that eliminate alienation from their communities. 

Incarceration is defined as confinement in prison, jail, immigrant, juvenile or military detention, or a deportation facility. Impacted women and girls are those that are or have been incarcerated, arrested, are on probation and/or parole.

NOTE: The site we use for donations has a $6,000 limit for ACH (bank transfer) transactions only.  You can choose to make several transactions or use other payment methods for donations over $6,000.
