So this isn’t exactly about Millennials, except that I’m a Millennial and it relates to me. I wanted to highlight a non-profit that I now have the amazing opportunity to help with!
The Restoration House is a non-profit located in the Knoxville area, helping single mothers and their children to be restored to a good life. They provide medium-term housing and childcare (think around 2 years) while single mothers work to get back on their feet. Additionally, job and life skills are taught.
But more than that, Restoration House provides a community for these families to be a part of. It is the belief of Restoration House that the community is the bedrock of a fulfilled life, and also serves as a great safety net. I have been given the opportunity to coordinate social media activities, and am so very excited! I will get an insider’s view of the goings-on, as well as the opportunity to connect with the amazing families and volunteers that make up this community!
