Happy Birthday Refuge Chicago!

Year End Header.png

First year birthdays are special celebrations and ours was Nov 21. 

This was the day we welcomed our first resident!  Just as a proud parent looks back on her baby’s first year that is marked by that first smile, that first tooth, that first step… Refuge is now looking back on our first year and we have had many special firsts as well.

You have been with us through our first year of sleepless nights, learning our rhythm, growing through challenges and celebrating victories - THANK YOU. 

These memories are yours as well and we invite you to continue being part of the Refuge family into year 2 where we look forward to more graduations, more baptisms, a backyard prayer garden and so much more.

Your prayers, support, and encouragement help us offer our courageous women:

  • A safe place to live in a secure location
  • A loving group of people to walk the healing journey with them through our 24/7 staff and volunteers
  • Professional counseling with trauma informed therapists on a weekly basis
  • A home where healthy rhythms of life and job preparation can be experienced, modeled, and practiced
  • A place to encounter Jesus and receive His hope for the future
