Our mission is to give shelter, warmth and hope in face of
poverty and need. Together, we create a home in the countryside
where women, men, single parents, children, and any in need can
experience safety, community, and belonging in the process of
regaining strength and building healthy lives. Rooted in the
prayer of the Christian church, we respect the beliefs and faith
of all who come.
The purpose of this house is to be a ‘home away from
home’ for people who need a break: peace and quiet, shared
meals and work, nature, fresh air, prayer space.
The Refuge is about people who share this dream of communion
with the poor, with Christ, and with one another, in the most
concrete ways: doing dishes, sweeping floors, sharing tasks,
meals, and life's events.
