House of Refuge Ministries
November 16, 2009
This organization was started in the home of two dedicated community members. I am in awe of their generosity and compassion. It is an honor to support such an organziation where everyone gives their time and resources so freely.
The House of Refuge serves the community first. Caring for folks who otherwise might never see a safe bed or warm food.
This shelter is the first of its kind in our county of 87,000. With the Homeless point in time head count last year identifying 190 homeless people that we know of ... The House of refuge couldn't be needed more. There is NO shelter other than THOR. It was started with no funds and the community has rallied together to generate support.
What a motivator, what a testimony to the very community we live in that togehter WE can make a difference in the lives of EVERYONE!
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
House Women AND men; house even more individuals; create a safer community; save more lives; focus on community development and outreach; serve populations whose needs are NOT being met and for once focus on HUD's target populations - Chronic Homelessness
