Psalm 5:11 (ESV)
The Refuge is a support group for survivors of domestic violence (physical or emotional). One in four women have experienced domestic abuse in their lifetime, and God calls his people to protect the oppressed. The Refuge combines mentoring and group support to help women understand abuse biblically, achieve safety, find healing in Christ, and learn how to establish new patterns.

The Refuge meets weekly for as long as a survivor wants to attend. We work through The Refuge Workbook in such a way that a woman can join at any time.
Refuge Kids is a place where children can find healing from the abuse they witness and experience within their parent’s relationship.
We believe that children need a safe place to bring their fears, their thoughts, and their questions. This is why we offer Refuge Kids for children of women attending the Refuge. They are given pizza, have a share and prayer time, and do therapeutic activities that apply the gospel through play.
Our trained leaders are sensitive to the needs of these children. Not only is it a provision for childcare for the women in the Refuge, but it is a helpful, positive atmosphere to encourage healing.
Please download our Welcome Letter below with helpful information and requirements.
