Everyone is concerned for the homeless, especially in cold weather. The Refuge board is aware of the challenges that cold weather brings. Many are depending upon the Refuge this season. We are working hard to gather volunteers and churches to insure we can meet the needs of those who want to transition out of homelessness. Unfortunately, the Refuge does not open until November 30th. The Refuge depends heavily upon volunteers and churches in our area. When there are no volunteers or churches getting involved with the Refuge it is hard to cover one season. Our dream is to be a year round transitional housing program. But we lack the volunteers to make that dream happen. If you want to get involved for immediate help for the homeless please pray. Above all else we need your prayers. Also, you can volunteer. You can be an intake worker or help your local church house the homeless for a week. Finally, tell someone about the Refuge. Share this post. Volunteer with friends. Get your church involved. The Refuge cannot do it without you.
