Lifting up those in need, together.

Because of you…

Refuge of Hope is able to provide hot meals to hungry and hurting men, women and children in a family-style setting nine (9) times every week.

Because of you…

Homeless men receive hot showers, meals, clothing, and access to counseling in a safe and clean dormitory-style shelter.

Poverty, hunger, and homelessness are major concerns in Stark County. With your help Refuge of Hope can continue to provide the vital services needed for those who live in dire circumstances.
