From the Directors Desk

First Refuge Staff, Volunteers, and Supporters,
This is an exciting time for our Ministry. There are lots of changes and with those changes well most certainly come heartache and headaches but I am excited to see what God is doing here at First Refuge. I am calling on everyone to join my staff and I in praying for this ministry as we get new staff members and volunteers.  Please let me know if there is anything I can help you with as we grow and navigate through these changes.  Please also pray for the Mustache Dash in April and the Gala in October as these two events are our two biggest fundraisers. 
For His glory,
Paul Juarez
Executive Director
First Refuge Ministries
