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.
