Leaving Your Legacy

Our Refuge House

Every day, Refuge House provides security and stability for women, children and men in our community who have experienced harmful attacks, and need ongoing safety and support to heal and seek justice.  

Through your support and investment, you provide that same security and stability for Refuge House.

There are many ways to give, and each and every gift makes it possible to create a thriving future for the people we serve.  Please consider the strategies that work best for you to save lives, build hope, and end violence far into the future.

 Why Planned Giving?

Planned gifts allow you to make a much bigger impact with a larger gift than might be possible with an immediate cash donation.  You believe in our mission, and in the future of the individuals and families we serve.  Your planned gift assures that our mission, and hopes of those we serve, continue to thrive.
One former client said it best,

"We can win our lives and our freedom back."
