About Refuge for Women Ohio Valley:
We were very excited to welcome our first three residents at Refuge for Women Ohio Valley! The women have all expressed appreciation for a program to help them heal and overcome their past. All three women are adjusting to their new schedule and to the employees at the house. This past week we were able to get them established with the therapist as well as a primary care provider for routine medical care as needed. In addition to the staff onsite, Ohio Valley also has an amazing Board of Directors and volunteers who have helped prepare the house for the residents and welcomed them to our community.
The residents attended Crossroads Christian Church on Sunday and two of them were very excited to participate in the annual Christ Walk that was held on Good Friday. The Christ Walk is a way for Jesus's people to come together in solidarity to show our love of Christ and the ultimate sacrifice He made for us to the community. The walk is 7 miles from Steubenville to Wintersville while different participants take turns carrying a cross. We stop at different locations to pray for the communities and end the walk with a time of worship and praise.
Refuge for Women Ohio Valley is continuing to increase awareness of Human Trafficking as well as the services we are able to provide in our community. Our current need and focus is on increasing our monthly "Freedom Fighters".
