The Refuge is a free, safe, and loving home for single women experiencing a crisis pregnancy. The mission of The Refuge is to provide these women with housing, educational and life-skills opportunities, counseling, and access to health services in a loving environment, supporting them on their journey to independence.
PSC had a previous apartment donated temporarily that could house three moms. That apartment was sold, and the next month four floors of a seven-story building was donated for our counseling center, office, and moms’ home! We officially opened in January 2016. The Refuge is equipped to house four moms, ages 20 and above, and their babies. They can move into the Refuge at any point during their pregnancy. Moms can live at The Refuge for 6 months-1 year with the babies they are raising. Pregnant women who are choosing adoption can also live at the Refuge for up to one month after they deliver their babies.
