Partnering with City of Refuge!

Partnering with City of Refuge!

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.

Summer Playdate 2015

Summer Playdate 2015

We hold Mentor Mom group playdates quarterly. We even throw in a couple extra events when something local is happening in our community. Our Summer playdate is always a favorite. Mentors pick up their Mentees + kids and bring them out to a splash park. This year we went to Stone Creek Park in Rancho Cordova, CA and we had a huge turnout!  Chick-Fil-A sponsored this playdate by providing enough food to feed a village. We can’t thank them enough for their support, over-the-top delicious food, and providing all the plates and utensils. They definitely went above and beyond. Everyone had a great time eating out on the grass and socializing with each other. For some of our mentees, this is the first time their kids and themselves have ever experienced Chick-Fil-A and also a splash park. We love showing our mentees the fun FREE entertainment that is right around them. Often our Mentees aren’t ever exposed to the local parks, most get content staying in their apartments and not getting out. The joy on our moms faces, breathing fresh air, and interacting with new friends is hard to describe. We also brought out some popsicles to keep the heat from seeming overbearing. Little did we know that there would be a local event fair going on at this park on the same day as well. Blessings in a Backpack & Ripples to Waves teamed up to create a Family Fun Day in the park. They brought out the red carpet for our moms without even knowing we would be there. They played games with them and we got some...
