NATIONAL RESTORATION TEAM [NRT] AT A GLANCE and NRT OBJECTIVES—HOW WE CAN HELP:

The National Restoration to Military Families Team, doing business as the National Restoration Team [NRT] is a 501C3, not-for-profit, community-based organization. Our Chartered members are comprised of leaders and family members from all branches of the armed forces and civilian communities, educators, and concerned citizens.

Target population: All Veterans and especially veterans and family members of the Global War on Terrorism.

NRT is an organism responding to inquiries from faith-based leaders and lay persons who continually ask ―what can be done…to assist deployed service members’ families, deployed service members, and fallen service members’ families? The founding and living legacy of the National Restoration Team [NRT] is an answer.

Mission: To empower communities to enhance the quality of life and support service members/veterans and their families (SMVF) through cycles of deployment.
