Christian Counseling Program

One of the programs offered at the Refuge Community Center is Christian Counseling.

We have two very talented Christian women who are certified counselors, and work with our homeless youth in group and individual sessions. They use art and music to provide the youth with a medium to express their thoughts and fears.  Their monthly reports offer great in-site into the hearts and minds of our youth.


I can tell it’s October, from the chills on my neck. I’m young and a bum, so I don’t get much respect. Try’n to live by the phrase, “You give what you get,” I’ll try not to be, the most broken you’ve ever met. Poem by Sandy, a homeless girl
