It's Christmas at The Refuge!
See our Holiday Hours of Operation here.
Christmas can often be a cold and lonely time for homeless and street youth. It reminds them of rejection by family and the fact that they are alone. Most of the youth at The Refuge do not like this season since it brings to light the abuse and abandonment they have experienced.
The Refuge seeks to be a place of love and encouragement; to be a ‘home’ for the youth where they experience the unconditional love of the very first Christmas that took place hundreds of years ago through the birth of a little baby boy!
When you purchase an item from the Christmas Wish Catalogue you will help a hurting young person feel worthy and loved.
