My church supports R199. I’ve heard Candace speak, and have been impressed with her love for her clients and commitment to serve them with her important and much-needed skill set. I recently ordered a selection of Eden Products soaps for a friend for her birthday and the presentation was great! I’m sure my friend will love them!

I have been receiving support from Restoration 1:99 for the last three years and her sessions has been very insightful, fun and transformational. I have developed tools and resources to manage difficult and overwhelming emotions resulting from complex childhood trauma. I have learned a completely new way to live, involving self-compassion, nonviolence, meditation, prayer, and love for myself and those around me. She definitely taught us the importance of Self Care. I always appreciate how she takes the time to ask me questions and patiently waits for my responses. I really feels like she truly cares for those she provides services to. Thank you Candance for all you do!

I first learned about Restoration 1 99 about five years ago and was really moved by the type of work they do. I think their approach, of treating people through art therapy, is extremely valuable. It's a wholistic approach that allows the client to gently explore aspects of themselves that can get missed it more traditional talk therapy, but has nonetheless, substantial affects on one's mental health.

I've had the pleasure of receiving good self care and coping ideas to better myself through Restoration 1:99. For the past 2 years, I've been able to have sessions with Candace and been able to apply what I've learned to my everyday of living, and share with family and friends. It has truly been a blessing! Thank you Restoration 1:99, please keep up the great work.

I have been receiving support from R 1:99 for the last three years and the guidance has been completely transformational. I have developed tools and resources to manage difficult and overwhelming emotions resulting from complex childhood trauma. I have learned a completely new way to live, involving self-compassion, nonviolence, meditation, prayer, and love for myself and those around me. Also, the beard oil from Eden Products is wonderful. I am excited to receive citrus bath salts to add to my "self-care kit." My life is exponentially improved since meeting R 1:99. Thanks for all you do and god bless!

I have been a client with Candace Wheeler for just under three months now and have already seen an incredible decrease in my anxiety and depression. In this short period of time she has helped me compile a toolbox of methods and techniques for regulating my own nervous system and managing the symptoms of CPTSD that had been plaguing me for years. Her gentle, compassionate approach has created a sustainable therapeutic environment where I am able to confront and heal my trauma one small piece at a time. Working with Candace has calmed the emotional storms that I had been trapped in and effectively given me my brain back. It feels like this work is addressing my physiology where talk therapy was leaving me re-traumatized. Washington DC is so lucky to have a resource like Restoration 1 99 especially in times like these where our entire culture has experienced recent collective trauma.

Founder, CEO and Therapist Candace Wheeler is a multifaceted force to be reckoned with. In the 5 years I've had a working relationship with Candace, I've been awed by her drive to help, heal and renew those tossed about by the ravages of human trafficking, PTSD and complex trauma.
I've shared in her training Healing Conversations and been blessed to list her work as a vital resource in my book about spiritual healing after sexual violence.

R199 is a pearl of great price and it deserves every good gift to support their work. Because of Restoration199, survivors and all who care for them have a promise of renewal to be counted on.

I have been connected to Restoration 1:99 for going on ten years now. I started out by becoming an Ambassador to learn more about the impacts of human trafficking and learned how I could make a difference in my community by bringing awareness to this topic. I've since joined the board and get to support Candace in her efforts to help Survivors of complex trauma. Candace does an excellent job in coming alongside survivors and equipping them to lead healthy restored lives. Thank you, R:199, for you hard work, dedication and commitment!

It is my pleasure to recommend Candance Wheeler, Restoration 199 for the outstanding services she has provided for our agency Exodus Treatment Center, Inc. As a contractor for Exodus for the past 3 years, I have witnessed the exceptional contributions her organization has made to the community. Not only is she hard-working, but has dedicated herself to enriching the lives of those who work around her. Restoration 199 is committed to bringing mental health awareness and compassion to the residents and staff she serves. We have received testimonies from our clients who once were unemployed, that they are working now because of her help. Clients have repoted how they are hopeful and healing now because of her services. Our organization has grown because of her support.

For a number of years, I have been concerned that people in the United States have not recognized human sex trafficking as a significant challenge. I became aware of another non-profit that served this sub-population and through them, I came to know Candace Wheeler, Founder and Executive Director of Restoration 1 99. This organization serves the very people who are most in need of therapy and support, the survivors themselves and their families and friends, as well as the professionals who work with the survivors. What a wonderful organization. I have purchased fantastic herbal products from their Eden Herbal Products store and donated to the organization since 2014 when I first became aware of them. I support them and hope that you will consider supporting Restoration 1:99 as I do.

I've known the Founder of Restoration 1:99, Candace Wheeler, for nearly 20 years, and have supported her ministry financially ever since I met her. She is highly principled, of moral excellence, and most notably, caring and compassionate. Even the name of her nonprofit reflects this theme: willing to leave the many others--the 99, in favor of seeking after and selflessly "restoring" the seemingly lowest person--the 1, to their true beauty.
