Restoration seeks to remove social, economic and financial barriers within the communities we serve by providing Central Brooklyn residents with a range of customized social services.
Vital resources and support such as health insurance and food stamps can often be challenging to access or even locate. We offer a wide range of public benefit enrollments designed to meet the needs of the client and connect them to employment, stability and self-sufficiency. Restoration provides access to compassionate, experienced professionals including case managers, lawyers, financial counselors, HPD housing ambassadors, and social workers, that work with clients to address their unique needs and find proactive, lasting solutions to the challenges they are facing.

Your mental health is just as important as your physical health. Restoration has an on-site social worker available to address issues you may encounter. We provide screening for stress, anxiety, depression, and substance abuse. We also offer referrals to external trained counselors and other support networks.
