Restoration Project is a nonprofit vocational rehabilitation program teaching traditional methods of furniture restoration to adults with mental illness, head injuries, and at-risk adolescents. The organization teaches participants to refinish and upholster furniture to build the confidence and work habits needed for success. Furniture restoration is especially suited to this goal because it is difficult and at the same time, so rewarding. Each job is broken into manageable, cumulative tasks, and mistakes are easily fixed.
