Please go to our page How Your Church Can Get Involved. Even if you are not a church, but another ministry or Christian club that has a building and volunteers, you too can partner with us.
The Refuge Lapeer Homeless Shelter partners with local churches in order to give food and shelter to the homeless of Lapeer County during the winter months of the year. Every November to April, The Refuge Lapeer hosts guests rotationally at Lapeer County churches. Shelter includes bedding/privacy for the night, food, access to clothing, and access to job-search transportation. The Refuge Lapeer needs volunteers to help at local churches during hosting.
We often get inquiries about clothing donations. We do not accept clothing; however, we have partnered with New To You Consignment in downtown Lapeer to receive donations of clothing and other items on our behalf. If you want to donate clothing or any other items to The Refuge, you can take them to New To You Consignment and donate on behalf of The Refuge. If our guests have need of clothing, coats, shoes, boots, etc., they can receive a special voucher from The Refuge to get clothing at no cost to the guest. Also, when any other donations on behalf of The Refuge are sold, a portion of the proceeds go to The Refuge and will be used to help our guests.
