We are a not for profit organization overseen by a board of directors.
All participants of The Refuge are volunteers.
The Refuge is operated by churches throughout Lapeer who take turns to provide temporary overnight shelter on a weekly basis November through April.

2012-2013 SEASON STATISTICS
The Refuge depends on volunteers to keep our doors open each winter.
Right now we don't have enough board members or Host Sites to open for a full season this winter.
The need for shelter is greater than ever!
Consider how you may help us to keep opening our doors to the homeless each winter.
Meet 7 year old Adrianna.
Impacted after her church hosted The Refuge this winter, she wanted to help.
With the help of her family, Adrianna has been making and selling bracelets to raise money.
Last night I met this bright young girl after her school musical where she handed me a check for $475.85!
That's awesome, Adrianna! Thanks for doing something beautiful.
