We believe God calls us to care for the poor, homeless, abused, and addicted and doing so brings hope to our community. We're grateful for a generous community that links arms with us in reaching those in need and breaking broken addiction cycles, in order to restore lives and families.

Since 1981, VRM is a faith-based, non-profit organization providing hope and restoration to individuals suffering from homelessness, addiction, and other situations prohibiting independence and self-sufficiency, such as the career limitations caused by a criminal record. We achieve this by providing programs, services and resources to help individuals become stable, thriving members of society.
