Additional Message (optional):

Refuge House is now at capacity!!!!!   God is good!  If you're so moved to help these newcomers by providing gift cards for Walmart, Target, Kohls or grocery stores or gas cards you would be blessing our moms in an enormous way!  Please contact Kate at 414-438-2767 if you'd like to help us out in this way.   We couldn't do any of this without the Lord and your support.  What a team!

  We have a special request...One of our new moms is in the process of transitioning out of Refuge House with in the next month.  She has procured housing, a job and learning to drive!  If you're looking for a way to serve and are in a position to donate a vehicle for her to reach independence, it would be an enormous blessing to her.  With a car she wouldn't have to think about standing at a cold bus stop this winter with her baby.   If you have a car that you're thinking of selling or trading-in, please prayerfully consider making  it a donation to APOR.  This of course is tax deductable and comes with more thank yous than you could possibly imagine!
