About The Refuge

Each year The Refuge welcomes in the range of 500 different young people through our doors almost 10,000 times. What this number doesn't include is the countless number of times we help our youth by going to doctor's appointments with them, visiting them when they are in jail, visiting them in their apartments when they do find a place to live, taking them to get a bank account...the things a parent should do for them....except they live alone, away from parents or never had a parent to help them learn to live life.


Historically, 92% of the youth who come to The Refuge have been physically or sexually abused. Home is not a safe place for them. Others have been abandoned, still others have developed their drug addiction or other negative behaviours from their parent(s).


The Refuge seeks to be a positive 'home' for these youth where, in community, they can heal from their pasts and find a hope for the future.
