Vocational Program

2 Women repairing chair

Restoration Project is an award-winning vocational rehabilitation program serving adolescents and adults with mental illnesses and brain injuries. Our mission is “to restore neurologically impaired individuals to self-sustaining lives by offering them remedial, transitional employment and facilitating their integration in the community.”

Program participants apprentice in a traditional furniture finishing and upholstering shop. They build confidence and learn good work habits, social skills, and transferable work skills, which are key to their success.

Our job developer helps participants find meaningful employment in the community based on their interests and abilities.

 

Thrift Store

The Restoration Project Thrift Store, located adjacent to the vocational program workshop at 334 Pleasant Street, Belmont, MA. , is open to the public seven days a week. The store is overflowing with great values including antique furniture, housewares and decor, men’s and women’s clothing, jewelry, fashion accessories, books, records and CDs.

In addition to serving the public, our Thrift Store provides training in retail tasks for our program participants. All proceeds from the store go to support our mission of recovery and reintegration for our participants.
