The Restoration House (R|H) of Greater Kansas City was established in 2015 as a response to the epidemic of human trafficking with a mission to provide housing, food, healthcare, therapy, education, emotional and spiritual counseling, and job skill training without charge or discrimination, to adult women and minor girl survivors of human trafficking.
In 2019, R|H partnered with Missouri Baptist Children’s Home to open the Mabee House, serving minor girl survivors of human trafficking. Later that year, R|H took possession of a 7+ acre facility with hopes to expand the capacity of adult survivors to nation-leading levels.
Straub has partnered with R|H on a renovation to convert an outdated 11,000 SF Baptist church on R|H Farms into a home for 11 adult women and full-time staff members. The new facility will serve as faith-based long-term residential housing with comprehensive programs and services for adult survivors. Adult women will be able to reside at R|H Farms, being afforded the time, space, individualized care, instruction, and therapies necessary to become healthy and self-sustaining contributors to society. An adult in the R|H program stays anywhere between 1-3 years. This renovation will increase their current adult capacity from 5 women to 16. Additionally, a renovation of the basement will provide new office spaces for staff members.
