Kristin Mills recently completed an internship with our Chicago site. Below she describes her favorite memory and how the internship changed her life.
I really loved seeing one of our residents give her life to Christ and get baptized. Seeing this resident ask questions to the staff and volunteers and then getting to see the result of how God has used Refuge to bring her into his family-in just 9 days of being in the program! God is so good!
This is such a life changing program for so many reasons. Starting with the staff, who are so intentional and passionate about serving these women and walking with them on their healing journey. Also, the curriculum used is absolutely amazing! It is very relevant to the trauma that the women have faced. Refuge truly reflects the love of Christ in every aspect of the program and it is contagious. Refuge creates a safe environment for recovery, which quickly develops into a family for all staff and residents.
