Each week The Refuge provides a space for local moms to come, be in community, build friendships, be mentored, and to have a place where they can come and belong.

As part of the program, we provide child care for all of the kids who come with their mom to the program so that they can attend the program distraction free, which is a large amount of volunteers, and we are looking to grow our childcare team! The Refuge provides an awesome environment for student volunteers through a weekly or bi-weekly commitment to watching kids, providing a safe space, being a good influence, keeping kids safe, and managing group games!
