RESTORE Is Turning 50!

PPCWNY will be celebrating a very special birthday this year: RESTORE, our support program for sexual abuse survivors and their loved ones, will have its 50th anniversary on July 2!

For 50 years, RESTORE has been leading the community response to sexual violence through advocacy and education, by providing the safety, support, and validation that changes the lives of all those affected. What started as a single-city volunteer service has expanded to a five-county organization of more than 25 staffers. Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week – no matter what -- RESTORE’s incredible staff and volunteers have been there to lend free, confidential support and information to survivors.

RESTORE has shown up for clients across Monroe, Genesee, Livingston, Orleans, and Wyoming counties, not just through its 24-hour hotlines, but also via its specialized services for college students, incarcerated folx, those experiencing relationship violence, and child survivors. RESTORE is located on various college campuses in the area, set up a direct line for incarcerated survivors to use, and is part of a multidisciplinary team that responds to child sex abuse reports. In addition, RESTORE offers crisis intervention and support services addressing physical abuse, emotional abuse, economic abuse, control through over-protection, and abuse through the use of social privilege. Domestic abuse survivors are also able to access free legal support thanks to RESTORE.

RESTORE would not be able to deliver round-the-clock assistance if not for its incredible volunteers. If you’d like to volunteer with RESTORE, we hold trainings three times a year, click here to learn more.

There are also other ways to get involved, including monetary donations and the purchase of items on RESTORE’s Amazon wish list. If you’d like to donate some needed items, RESTORE is also currently seeking new or unused small/medium-sized cosmetic bags, underwear, bras, journals, sketchbooks, coloring books, crayons, and coloring pencils.

As the program prepares for its 50th birthday, we want to extend a heartfelt thanks and congratulations to RESTORE. You – the staff and the volunteers – have provided decades of much-needed aid and are a credit to PPCWNY and the broader community. Here’s to another 50 years of empowering survivors.
