Our Programs

House of Refuge Sunnyslope has been breaking the cycle of homelessness since 1988. Providing more than transitional housing, we equip individuals to lead independent lives that enable them to break free from homelessness.

Working Men

We are able to house 35 men beginning in 2-man dorm rooms on our main campus. They'll eventually move to their own bedroom in a house.

Our program lasts up to one year. Participants join together for dinner on weeknights and attend Bible study as well as participate in a Celebrate Recovery program.

Stable residents in good standing can take advantage of further restorative services like our dental and vision program, Christian counseling, career readiness, scholarships, and transportation.

Working Women

We are able to house 10 women in two separate homes. Each woman shares a bedroom with another.

Our program lasts up to one year. Participants join together for dinner on weeknights and attend Bible study as well as participate in a Celebrate Recovery program.

with Children

We are able to provide private apartments with 1-3 bedrooms for women with children. Currently we can house up to 12 families.

This program lasts up to two years. Residents are provided with a kitchen for meal preparation, and food boxes if needed. Participants engage in Bible study classes where childcare is provided.

Entering House of Refuge Sunnyslope

New residents must be employed or actively seeking employment, and must not be a current user of alcohol or drugs.

Coming from unemployment, prison, recovery, or an endless cycle of homelessness, our residents experience a clean and safe home where transforming their lives can begin. Full-time work is paired with a personalized Vision for Victory program designed to achieve the ultimate goal of becoming self-sufficient.

Vision for Victory

Vision for Victory is a program where residents experience a resilient, Christ-focused, and thriving life through concentration in four key areas:

  • Being Open to God
  • Being Teachable
  • Seeking Healthy Relationships
  • Desiring Financial Stability

HRS Food Bank

Our foodbank kitchen gathers over 180 tons of food each year from partners and donors. This programs allows us to feed our 220+ residents each year, providing stability and supply.

Additionally, we share with other organizations to ensure that no donated food goes to waste, and that those who have need are fed.
