Hope Restores offers support groups like Women of Melanin and Brothers Battling Barriers, and have mentoring programs. They have a mini pantry and free diapers, offer assistance with transportation, drop-in childcare, community advocacy, diversity training and a lot more. Check out the full list of their programs and services HERE.
For Black History Month, they’re encouraging the community to decorate their doors and doing a youth essay contest. We caught up with co-founder Mya Curtis to get all the info:
