Volunteer Where Good Works
The campus gym added yoga and fitness opportunities to keep everyone active and allow them to blow off steam as they navigate current uncertainties. The temporary closure of our onsite preschool brought extra challenges for mothers already struggling to gain self-sufficiency. The preschool reopened as soon as local guidelines allowed. COR added on-site instructors along with extra equipment to facilitate learning and provide additional support during the virtual school day.
Charity Navigator believes nonprofit organizations that engage in inclusive practices, such as collecting feedback from the people and communities they serve, may be more effective. Eden Village staff stepped up to ensure each resident continues to benefit from the full wrap-around support they need. The 180 Degree Kitchen continues to provide three healthy meals a day.
Without your continued support and service to the rescue mission, we wouldn’t be able to offer the support to those who need it most. Thank you for your interest in volunteering at City of Refuge! Constituent Feedback and Listening Practice data are not available for this organization.

Another thing I’ve learned is more personal and something God showed me about myself. The most important thing I learned at City of Refuge is God’s heart and love for the poor. After a short visit to City of Refuge in March 2014 I went home to a job and an apartment, never thinking about moving for a longer period of time.

Most refugees fly for the first time and step foot into a new city they’re expected to call home without a basic knowledge of where to go to get access to the things they need. City of Refuge provides Basic Need Services, such as access to clothing, food, household items and navigating complex refugee paperwork to provide a space for refugees to rest and recover from their journey.
