ref·uge

/ˈrefˌyo͞oj,ˈrefˌyo͞oZH/

noun: a condition of being safe or sheltered from pursuit, danger, or trouble.

"God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble." Psalm 46:1

Since 1999, The Refuge has been working with youth who are experiencing homelessness or are at-risk of experiencing homelessness, or who are struggling.  More than just a place to find breakfast, lunch, showers, laundry facilities, access to clothing and personal hygiene products, as well as housing help, The Refuge is a place where youth can find community, safety, belonging and a renewed hope for their future.  

The vision of The Refuge is to see people restored to the truth that they are created in the image of God with gifts, abilities, the capacity to make positive decisions and to affect change in the world around them. We desire to see people reveal God’s glory through careful stewardship of their lives, communities, resources and relationships.
