It's the most thrilling fundraiser event to ever hit Knoxville, and we want YOU to join us!
Why Over the Edge:
Every day, single mothers selflessly face pressures that would push most of us Over the Edge. Time and time again, they courageously face these challenges head on in order to provide for their children.
In response to their strength, bravery and dedication, The Restoration House asks: Would you go Over the Edge for someone you love? Will you go Over the Edge for the mother-led families of The Restoration House?!
About The Restoration House
At its core, The Restoration House (TRH) believes that God intended for us to live in community. Over the past 11 years, The Restoration House has seen single mother families become "rooted" in community as they seek wholeness. Families like Jessica's, Lydia's, and Chasity's, who have experienced tremendous restoration through their time at TRH. You can view their stories to the right.
100% of the funds raised from Over the Edge will go directly to benefit the single-mother families living at The Village.
