A Child’s Refuge exists to make life better for those less fortunate.
We are dedicated to sharing God’s love by helping the most needy and marginalized children and families in providing for basic needs of survival. Our primary mission is to provide for clean water, food, shelter, clothing, medical needs, and both academic and vocational education for the least where we serve. We currently offer support programs in Central America including Haiti and Guatemala.
A Child’s Refuge is a non-profit charitable organization; we provide tax-deductible receipts for all monies received to the extent allowed by law. In all that we do, we purpose to love others as Jesus taught us to in Matthew 22:34-40. In essence, A Child’s Refuge exists to love neighbors with the same love we show ourselves.
We are wholly volunteer run and have an actual overhead of less than 1%. That means we are blessed to ensure that more than 99% of all donations go directly to helping the least.
ACR is a proud participant of the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) and a member organization of Children’s Charities of America (CCA).
“Whenever you did one of these things to someone overlooked or ignored, that was me—you did it to me” – Jesus
“Many of the things we need can wait. The child cannot. Right now is the time his bones are being formed, his blood is being made and his senses are being developed. To him we cannot answer “Tomorrow.” His name is “Today.” —Gabriela Mistral, 1948
“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not. – Dr. Seuss
