About this Shelter

The Refuge can house up to nine families at a time.

During their 30- to 45-day stay, families are empowered through assessment and advising, referrals to community resources, and personal attention to strive toward independence and permanent housing.

Particular attention is given to the children at The Refuge, helping them work through the stress and transition that homelessness brings.

Mission Statement:
"Rooted in God's love and care, EUMA provides life-changing opportunities for those who live at the margins of homelessness to become vital members of our community. We accomplish this task by providing those in our community who are homeless and in need with safe shelter, basic necessities, and faithful support as they work toward achieving their greatest potential. "
