The Foundations of R.E.S.T.O.R.E., Inc.
R.E.S.T.O.R.E., Inc. is a faith-based non-profit 501 (c) (3) corporation created for the purpose of restoring men to their role as the head of the family through the gospel of Jesus Christ, by providing spiritual, educational and job training support to enable men to become responsible and involved fathers and husband. The corporation is organized exclusively to promote responsible fatherhood through religious and educational means.

Fathers will be actively involved in the spiritual, emotional, psychological, mental, academic, and behavioral development of their children. R.E.S.T.O.R.E., Inc. will be one of the leaders in the nation to restore fatherhood and the institution of the family and its importance in maintaining social order and economic growth in society.
Belief: It is our belief that even after you have provided a man with tools and natural resources to overcome personal and systemic barriers to responsible fatherhood, it is only superficial. The source of his problems has not been addressed, making his apparent success only temporary. We must train men, both in the natural and supernaturally, to be adequately able to sustain himself against the attacks of the adversary.
When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation." Matthew 12:43-45
