The Story of How Restoration House Was Born

Restoration House of Greater Kansas City (RHGKC) began its mission in 2015 as a response to the increasing epidemic of human sex trafficking in the U.S. Since then, RHGKC has earned a national reputation and been afforded a national voice toward the healing and restoration of survivors of human sex trafficking.


Today, RHGKC is a leading organization in offering long-term residential housing and the most comprehensive curriculum suite of programs and services for survivors of human sex trafficking.


RHGKC believes the healing and restoration process is a long-term endeavor, and necessitates a steady and patient process grounded in mental, emotional, psychological and physical de-programming and re-programming.

While many other organizations employ a more intense and expedient healing philosophy, RHGKC believes the high recidivism rates of these programs is unacceptable, and ultimately damaging to the national mission. As such, RHGKC has developed the nation’s first 3-year restoration community, where survivors are able to receive the individual attention and focused programming that promotes sustainable healing and restoration. Only then can these survivors move confidently toward healthy, self-sustained, independent living.

This is our goal. If anyone wants less for these survivors, they must ask themselves, why?
