The Measure. 

 

We look at how we have created, strengthened, positioned and supported others in their ability to thrive.  We are relationship-oriented, rather than task/program-based, and because both sides make repeated investment in the relationship, we share a mutual interest in achieving a transformational outcome.

Family Development

 

Holistic Caregiving 

The Refuge is a community of homes which approximate a family environment with an emphasis on appropriate family modeling, consistency, routine, and supervision.  We honor each child’s story, trusting in God’s power to heal wounds and redeem every situation. We believe in holistic caregiving because every child deserves to be cherished and to pass on a healthy family legacy.

 

60+ vulnerable children have taken refuge in our homes.

Family Case Management

Social support is provided to families through internal referral among our development programs.  We work with families to ascertain the minimal level of temporary support (intervention) needed to achieve a level of stability not possible on their own during crisis.  These needs may include housing, employment, scholarships, or surgical case management, among others.

Community Development

 

Public Health

Our campaigns engage the community through health promotion and prevention, allowing volunteer teams to realize health screenings and well-checks, build latrines and water wells, and share essential health teachings with entire communities.  As we build and deepen existing relationships with community leaders, our influence increases.

Community Engagement

Our pastors engage their communities through participatory development, such as water, engineering, construction, and electrical projects.  They also provide counseling and supportive services for families, and love people inside and outside of the church through home visits, social activities, seminars, and curricula for individual, small group, and congregational Bible study.

Job Creation

Our social enterprises demonstrate our commitment to create new job opportunities in a region where gainful employment is scarce, as well as to generate a greater percentage of our operational expenses internally. Currently, our coffee farm, ranch, artisan shop, hotel and restaurant, among others, generate 25% of our budget.
