CITY OF REFUGE, INC.​​
Find Your Story, Make it Creative!​​
Have a Part in Making Everyone's Voice Heard
Creative, Foster Kid, Adopted Kid, Parent Trying to Keep Their Family Together...
They All Need Their Voices Heard
Imagine a city where photographers raise the voices of musicians, musicians raise the voices of jewelry makers, and every family has a support system which raises the voices of those victims of trauma.  This is what we are trying to create, and you are an important part of making this a reality!

If you would like to contribute to our goal of every voice being heard over the noise, please read on and find your place in our city of creatives and support systems for families/individuals coping with trauma.
