Psalm 91:3 This I declare about the LORD: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him. (NLT)


The Refuge

At Journey, we believe that the very best place that we can run in times of crisis is to God. He has promised to be our place of safety and protection. The Refuge is a domestic violence safe house located at Ebenezer House that offers a place to call home for women and children leaving an abusive situation. The Refuge can accommodate up to  12 women and children at one time. There is no cost or obligation to seek help at The Refuge. Women and children are welcome to stay as long as they need to receive the healing and stability necessary to find their independence. If you or someone you know is in an unhealthy relationship and would like confidential assistance in obtaining safety, please call The Refuge at 765.299.4617 or Beyond the Violence 24 hour emergency response number at 765.299.6283.

Current Needs:

The needs in our community are infinitely greater than our current resources can meet. The Refuge depends on the generosity of our friends and neighbors to help meet the operating costs associated with keeping The Refuge open and available to those who need it most. If you’re willing to partner with us in this endeavor, we would love to hear from you! In addition to financial assistance, The Refuge can always use household and personal care items such as deodorant, paper towels, bathroom tissue, cleaners, as well as food/grocery items. All donations made to The Refuge are tax-deductible as a charitable contribution.
