3E Restoration is the non-profit organization, a community development agency whose aim is to equip and encourage people in our community to break the cycle of homelessness and help empower people living through social displacement.
As people transition from living through social displacement to being housed, from extreme poverty to stability, a total life re-orientation must take place. More than behavioral modification is needed to break the cycle of what is sometimes five generations of poverty. Our neighbors and friends in need must experience transformation and systemic change in their lives in order to break the cycle.
3e’s concept of the Five-Fold Reality of Social Displacement™ sees social displacement as a combination of physical, emotional, cognitive, spiritual and social effects. The curriculum, written by Fred Liggin (Founder of 3e Restoration, Inc.) and edited by Dr. James Goalder (Clinical psychologist) is designed to equip faith communities in order to address this five-fold reality in their locality.
By drawing upon evidence-based research and practice, trauma studies, and social science as well as a robust theology of Christian hospitality, the 3e Curriculum equips and empowers our neighbors and friends in need with the life skills necessary to maintain holistic sufficiency.
