Bestow on her a Crown of Beauty, instead of ashes, the Oil of Joy instead of mourning, a Garment of Praise instead of a spirit of despair.

Isaiah 61:3

Our Story

From Our Backyard to Beyond

In 2015, in Lakewood, Colorado, we encountered an unsettling truth: exploitation was not a distant issue but a local crisis. Recognizing the transformative power of faith, community, and relationships, we launched Re-Fined to shine a light, offer a hand, and walk together toward healing and hope.

Our Goal

Aiming for a Brighter Tomorrow

Our goal is to create a future free from exploitation. By nurturing connections that empower, heal, and renew, we believe in the immense impact of faith coupled with community action. Every discussion, event, and collaboration brings us closer to realizing this vision. Join us in making a tangible difference, step by step, towards a brighter tomorrow.

The Problem

There are many different life situations that lead people to face exploitation.

Often trapped in cycles of abuse, individuals face trauma similar to those exploited, including fear, control, and physical harm.

Children in foster care frequently encounter exploitation, a tragic reality for many.

Homeless individuals are at high risk of sexual violence, including rape and coerced exchanges for basic needs.

People in the sex industry, whether online or offline, can be under someone else’s control and not as free as it might seem.

Sometimes, the danger is right at home — exploitation comes from within the family or trusted individuals, like parents or coaches.

Addiction and exploitation are interlinked, with substances used as tools of control and as coping mechanisms for trauma.
