TEXARKANA, Texas – A Texarkana non-profit dedicated to helping parolees find a higher purpose is expanding its facility.

Since opening in 2020, Restoration of Hope has helped 1500 men off the streets and out of prison. There’s currently 65 men in their facility and care homes.

Founder Danny Stone says they’ve just opened a new chapel and are adding 24 more beds to the facility.
