Make a Difference!

Recently, while volunteers were dropping off gift baskets, a resident asked if she could say something. After receiving  encouragement to share, she broke out in song and SANG “His eye is on the sparrow”. In awe of her and her beautiful  trembling voice, the volunteers and staff stood in awe as she began to cry trying to sing “I sing because I’m happy”! With  the resident in joyful tears, a Refuge for Women staff member multiplied the moment by picking up where the resident  had left off and singing the song. We stood in awe of the transformed life before us! NONE of this would be possible  without your support! 

Do not miss the impact of your generosity in 2021 or the impact that newer donors and volunteers will have in the lives  of women for years to come! There is movement in the Bluegrass as the Lord is continuing to expand our reach, to reach  MORE women, throughout Kentucky!
