Refuge of Hope's shelter is not just a place where a homeless man can sleep at night. Provides a support center, in a safe environment, where men can come to grips with the personal, economical and societal issues that caused them to become homeless. We provide a hand up to encourage homeless men, to help them realize that positive life changes are possible regardless of their current circumstances.
Our goal is to help homeless men understand the love of Jesus Christ and achieve the stability necessary to be a positive contributor in our community.
We were able to move over 90 men into permanent housing last year and through August of 2015 over 70 additional men are now living in their own apartments. Refuge of Hope is the only such shelter in Stark County for men.
