Doing more for the community...

Not only is Valley Restart a source of help for families and individuals, it is an educational source for students. We offer practicum and internship hours for several schools including the University of Phoenix, USC, Rutgers University, Arizona State University, Cal Baptist University, Cal State San Bernardino, Cal State San Marcos,  Cal State Fullerton, Chamberlain University, West Coast University. 

This is an excellent opportunity for training with a diverse population, and helping to connect need in the area with local resources. 

Anyone seeking hours for a Master’s Degree will need an external field supervisor.

Valley Restart Center is More than a Shelter.
We are focused on being a Part of the Solution.

Valley Restart is a shelter and resource center for persons experiencing homelessness located in the Hemet-San Jacinto Valley. Incorporated in 1989 as a 501c3 not for profit agency, Valley Restart is supported by a collaboration of the public, private and religious sectors.

Anyone interested in any of the programs Valley Restart has available is encouraged to come to our office Monday – Friday, from 9 am – 12 pm except holidays. At the office, we can explain what programs we have available at the time, and how to apply for them. ALL of our programs require a California Photo ID for ALL adults so bring them with you! General information can be obtained by calling the office Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 5 PM. We normally have a waiting list for all housing programs.
