Growing Home

In order for anything to grow, it must be firmly planted.

With the need for our counseling services at an all-time high, it is imperative that The Refuge Center build a larger, permanent home with the help of generous community partners.

With your help we could serve significantly more in our community, 5000 clients in 40,000 counseling sessions, in our new home and with our collaborative nonprofit partners throughout Middle Tennessee and beyond. Imagine the impact of this many changed lives? Our clients share what this means for individuals, couples, children and families right here in our community.

We believe growth is not always just about “more” and “bigger” but is also about deeper and richer. Because of this, The Refuge Center’s 15,200 square foot facility and campus will be a holistic facility that is a physical manifestation of our culture of compassionate care. Plans include spaces like a prayer chapel, walking trails, a healing garden, and a large multi-purpose room for seminars and group activities. If you have questions about this new facility, please visit our FAQ page or reach out to us. We are happy to talk to you.

We strongly believe that no matter who you are, no matter what you have done, no matter what has been done to you, no matter how much your income is or where you live- when you come to The Refuge Center you deserve to have the most excellent care possible with maximum opportunity for healing.
