Female, Age 27

The Refuge Center has hit the sweet spot of providing affordable counseling that is both spiritual and practical. This combination has enabled me to take steps towards healing that I believe will last. TRC is a place where my faith can be combined with works to produce life in my soul. I find myself lighter and more joyful after each session; more proud of my progress. My counselor creates a space of safety where I can bring my pain, disappointment, apathy, etc., rummaging through the mess of my heart, without judgment. I’m always met with encouragement, understanding, and acceptance. In one of the darkest seasons of my life, TRC stepped in as a beacon of hope, guiding me towards a more whole version of myself. I am extremely grateful to God for that, and it’s icing on the cake that I am able to afford it due to their willingness to adjust to my income.
