Re-fined’s mission is to form empowering and restorative relationships with survivors of sexual exploitation.
Our vision is for every survivor to be nurtured to wholeness through deep, connected relationships with Christ and His people.
1. Centered on Christ
We believe that God is the one who holds the keys to true restoration and that all of our work begins and ends with His guidance.
We work best in close, supportive partnerships with other organizations in the community. We know that by working together, all of our efforts thrive.
The needs of each survivor and each community partner vary widely, and Re-fined is committed to noticing the gaps in services and filling them whenever possible.
We believe God uses relationships and community to heal wounds, strengthen bonds, and move His kingdom forward. We are committed to offering an inclusive, healthy, warm community where everyone has a place.
Re-fined takes our work very seriously, and having our staff, Board, volunteers, and donors learn as much as they can about the issues we are addressing, and our methods for affecting change is vital.
Our goal is that through the Refinement Process, the sexually exploited can find freedom. Freedom to move on with life and be who they were created to be. We hope to restore dignity and identity, so the sexually exploited can learn their intrinsic value and find their place in society. Each month we have a variety of outreach events and touchpoints with survivors. There are so many ways you can get involved, from donations to volunteer opportunities.
