After expanding into our current space in 2016, we have jumped on the opportunity to expand again into an adjacent office space. This extension will provide five clinical offices, one administrative office and another waiting area for clients. Additionally, we will have a private gathering area for staff to relax between clients.
This new space will allow us to grow by 37% over the next 18 months.For almost a year, our services have been in such high demand that we are experiencing waitlists of up to 60 people per week. This is despite being open 71 hours each week—almost twice the average business hours of other places. The additional space will allow us to accommodate our ever-growing waitlist and serve those who are in need as soon as possible. As a faith-based counseling center, we desire to serve all who seek help. Our mission is to offer hope to a hurting world. As our ability to serve more clients expands, so will our emphasis of maintaining a culture of connection, continuous growth, and character.
You can help our community with your gifts.
Your gifts offset costs of furnishing the new space, so our counseling service fees remain affordable for everyone, regardless of income.
We invite you to be a part of this journey as your gifts help even more people in our community find hope, healing, and transformation from the storms of daily life. Soon, we will have an open house to show off our new space.
*NOTE: This expansion is NOT in place of our desire to find a permanent home for The Refuge Center. This is a short-term solution to allow us to live out our mission. Our growth and waitlists only re-enforce the need for our services in this area. We are still proceeding with trying to find land to build our new home. Stay tuned (Want to join us in this journey?

The Refuge Center is a shelter for those in need. May God continue to be guided by the North Star. Blessings to all helping support the mission
