What We Do

The Refuge

 

 

We are in the work of replacing a poverty lifestyle with a prosperous lifestyle. In order to do that, we begin by occupying the streets. Somewhere between 1986 and today, Peak St.’s reputation changed. It is no longer a place of gang wars, murder, and drug houses, but it is a beacon of hope resting right in the middle of Dallas.

Why? ---Because change comes one life at a time and changing lives is possible.

Transitional housing is one of the greatest needs for people that are not financially stable. R/O provides transitional housing for the “working poor,” this gives them time to rebuild their finances in a safe environment. God's purpose for The Refuge is to provide transitional housing to facilitate self-sufficiency in Men, Women, and Families that have recently lost their home or are having a hard time covering their current rent. The Refuge is not a shelter, nor is it a solution for long term housing. The Refuge is a place where people can come and get a respectable place to live while saving money, to get a better place to live. Reconciliation Outreach hopes that in this purpose The Refuge will improve the chances of its tenants to become independent, strong members of their community.
