Statement of Faith and Mission
Place of Refuge (POR) is a Christian organization participating in the building of God's Kingdom here on earth. We will do this by sharing God's love with the marginalized people in our own neighbourhoods. Specifically, we will start by acquiring, staffing and operating transitional living accommodations for people recovering from addictions to drugs or alcohol.
While sharing God's love in a practical way is reward enough, we hope that involvement in this ministry by our supporting churches will help members of those churches grow through the exercise of their faith. We also hope that many of the people who use the services we provide will come to know Jesus through our service. We will work to ensure that opportunities for both these goals exist.
Our aim is to provide a safe environment for all the people that come to us for aid, and to help them become healthy, confident and drug free. We will accept people and treat them as God's valued children, without prejudice.
