I would like to take a few minutes to wish our volunteers, friends, and supporters a very happy new year! 2018 was a phenomenal year for Restoration Project International (RPI). Although there is still much work left to do, we had some major accomplishments. In 2018, we moved into our new space at the Village Exchange Center in Aurora; we were awarded by the Links, Inc.; and we established two new classes (Microsoft Certification and Financial Management) to better assist our survivors to integrate back into normalcy. RPI was also featured on Educa Radio and in Colorado Nonprofit magazine. In addition, we have forged many new relationships with various resource partners. I would like to personally thank each of you for your tremendous support, and I look forward to a wonderful 2019!
Thanks and Appreciation,
Lisa Young, Board Chair

WE ARE OFF TO A GOOD START
I want to thank all of our donors, contributors, supporters, interns, volunteers, staff and board for their awesome work in 2018. We cannot do this work without you. See some of the happenings in 2018.
We opened our Resource Center in Aurora. We served 6 actual survivors, and numerous others through our awareness outreach, presentations and trainings.
Microsoft Certification class creates a pathway for building career in computer education. We had 4 participants in the program this past year. Our 2019 class will start mid-March.
Financial Literacy class teaches survivors how to manage their finances and invest their money wisely. Our last class had 6 participants. Currently, we have 6 women attending the class that started January 22nd, 2019
Data Entry (NEW!): This upcoming program will teach survivors about data entry and provide an opportunity to have a hands-on, i.e. paid internship with one of our partners with an ultimate goal of creating a career path in data services. Stay tuned for details...
Sustainable Restoration Conference (SRC): Similar to our 2017 conference , we will be hosting another SRC in July of 2019 to enlighten, educate and dispel myths about human trafficking and domestic violence. We would have three works that would run concurrently, and a panel of discussion. Please mark your calendars for that date!
Survivor Awareness & First Encounter (SAFE) Program: This is a new program created to lead impact in service provision for human trafficking and domestic violence survivors, introduce preventive measures to keep them safe, and develop resilience. We would conduct public outreach and education through monthly clinics which aims to complement services, build capacity for service providers, increase support for survivors, strengthen access to holistic healing, and improve data collection. Save the Date - March 15, 2019.
