Transforming Lives

Mission Statement:

The mission of Refuge Services is to enhance individual, family, & group functioning by providing opportunities to develop skills for solving problems, overcoming obstacles, and reaching individual as well as group goals.

Our vision is to build strong relationships through Equine-Assisted growth and learning activities. Our long term plan is to expand into a therapeutic environment retreat for families in a ranch setting - The REFUGE: Family Restoration Ranch. This ranch will incorporate traditional counseling, Equine-Assisted Therapy, as well as other nature therapies (ropes courses, camping, etc.)

Our goals are to improve communication, stimulate creativity in thinking, teach patience, build trust in relationships, and improve self-esteem.
