New center to help parolees seek higher purpose | Director: It’s not a halfway house, but an all-the-way house for Jesus

TEXARKANA, Texas – Helping those men recently released from prison and mentoring them to become devoted to God is the mission of the Restoration of Hope Center, soon to open on Hazel Street

The center, at 1217 Hazel St., served for about 30 years as the Hazel Street Recovery Center for addicted and troubled youth before it closed in 2017. Now it’s being renovated for men who have been, or will soon be, paroled from prison – men who are now looking for a higher purpose in life.
