The mission of City of Refuge is to CULTIVATE a COMMUNITY that TRANSFORMS and EMPOWERS broken lives through the TRUTH of GOD’S LOVE seen in acts of JUSTICE, MERCY and HUMILITY. They offer several different ministries and one in particular that fit perfectly for Mentor Moms! Refuge Housing is a residential housing program, located in the Oak Park community, which provides emergency housing and assessment center for up to four adult female survivors of sex-trafficking/exploitation. It offers assistance to women, who are frequently homeless when first escaping “the life”, as they move from dependent, abusive, exploitative relationships into independent, self-sufficient recovery lifestyles.
We have recently partnered with City of Refuge to pair Mentors with female survivors. We couldn’t be more thrilled to work together. Our hearts desire is the same. We want to come along side women to ensure wholeness and a full recovery. The best way to get back on your feet is to have someone cheering for you in your corner. Mentors are able to be a sounding board. They can help with resources and sound advice in times of need.
