Welcome to Refuge for Women Kentucky!

Events

In the early 1960s, Ron Archer was born to a seventeen-year-old single mother with a checkered past in the inner city of Cleveland. Sexually abused by a babysitter, teased unmercifully by classmates for his stuttering, and neglected at home, Ron wanted to die. At age ten, he put a loaded snub-nosed revolver to his head and pulled the trigger.

The gun did not fire.

With the help of a heroic teacher who introduced him to the Bible, Ron discovered Jesus Christ and finally found his voice. Now a celebrated public speaker, he reaches out to others who are in despair, sharing the hope that can only come from God.
