Providing a safe, faith-based environment for individuals and families while providing the tools to transition from homelessness to self sufficiency with dignity and pride.

Who Are We?

Calvary Refuge, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides emergency and transitional housing and food for homeless individuals and families in need. Through the continued effort of our staff, our volunteers, financial and other donations, and generous grants provided by federal, state, and county agencies, the Calvary Refuge Center has aided the homeless for nearly 30 years.


Through our Transitional and Emergency Housing programs, Calvary Refuge Center has helped thousands of homeless adults and children in need.

The average American family is just a few paychecks away from homelessness. Remember that we are always in need of volunteers, food and financial assistance.
