Operation Restore’s goal is to impact youth and families in drug and crime infested communities in low-income neighborhoods.

Operation Restore has accepted the responsibility to bring equity to these neighborhoods on every level.
Operation Restore will achieve it’s goals by hosting community drug rallies that call for zero tolerance of drug use and drug dealing. They offer FREE tutoring for youth and family counseling for those in need. In addition, music lessons, vocal and performing arts training will be provided on a weekly basis.
