City of Refuge
The mission of City of Refuge (COR) is to bring light, hope and transformation to the last, lost and least of Atlanta. Founded in 1997, City of Refuge is a 501 (c) (3) Christian ministry that provides life-saving resources and life-building tools that lead to stability and sustainability in the areas of housing, healthcare, education and employment with a primary focus on women and children experiencing homelessness. With an 8-acre campus and 210,000 square feet of renovated warehouse space, City of Refuge has the capacity to offer a “one stop shop” in the middle of the most underserved and under-resourced community in the state of Georgia. This holistic approach is made possible through strategic partnerships with organizations who are leaders in the non-profit community, including Saint Joseph’s Mercy Care Services (healthcare), Bright Futures-Atlanta (education), Feed My Lambs (childcare), the United Way of Greater Atlanta and many others.
