Since 2012 City of Refuge has provided housing for women and often their children who have been exploited, abused, and are facing homelessness.
"We believe that God’s love is a light that illuminates fear and darkness and is a place of safety and shelter for all who run to it." (Rachelle Ditmore - Co-Founder and Refuge Housing Director)
Our phase one program offers emergency housing for families at our women and children's shelter. Through our program we offer assistance and case management to women as they move from dependent, abusive, exploitive relationships to self sufficient lifestyles.
Our Phase two restorative housing program offers long term housing for families for those coming out of our phase one program, and offers them a launching pad in their journey to transformation.
City of Refuge is partnered with the city of Sacramento's motel voucher program, and daily walks with hundreds of families who are living in Sacramento's motels by providing supportive services through individualized assessments and client advocacy.
