Restoring Hope

Announcing Our New Location!

On Thursday November 21st, our office suite on Patrick Street was damaged by a burst water pipe. Although our move was planned it happened sooner than we anticipated. We are sorry for the confusion and/or inconvenience, but we are still getting our offices up and running. We hope to have our phone lines and internet service by weeks end. Please note there have been no changes to our office or fax numbers nor our mailing address.

Our new location is in the Mt. Olive Nest. Please note our new physical address. Come visit us at:
