The Refuge is so grateful for your Good Friday support
On behalf of the staff and the Board of Directors of The Refuge, I want to thank you for your support of The Refuge's vital mission during the community-wide Good Friday Service.
We are humbled and deeply grateful for the love and support given to us by the good people of Central Texas! I firmly believe that when we look back at this glorious gathering of over 300 churches, it will be a significant “marker” in the development of The Refuge Ranch.
Our goal and prayer has been to be able to open The Refuge to start caring for child survivors in December 2016. We’ve known all along, however, that we can’t reach that goal without the support of the entire community.
Since Friday we’ve heard from lawyers and lobbyists, carpenters, yoga instructors, teachers, doctors and nurses, machinists, photographers and manicurists -- all the people that make this Central Texas such a rich and diverse place. All these gracious people have offered to “Be the 1” in their own special way -- some with time and talent, some monetary and in-kind resources. Every person contributing makes a huge impact!
Thank you for being willing to take action on behalf of child survivors and for your gracious help in building a place of rest and restoration for the young survivors who will soon be in our care.
