The Refuge Mission Statement
The refuge is not just a place, it is a state of mind. We believe all the best things in life : friends, music, concerts, video games, movies, fun, food and parties should help you achieve and celebrate your dreams instead of rob you of them.
Champions of Life Inc. provides safe, fun places, all ages events and youth activities through arts and music that are free from the risks and influence of drugs, alcohol and violence and self destructive attitude and behaviors.
Our mission is to help young people stay healthy and whole by choosing to be a "Champion of Life" over taking drugs or alcohol, smoking and other destructive choices.
The Refuge is a Non Profit 501c3 Coffeehouse and Youth Club run by Champions of Life Inc. and Hartley’s Karate as a community outreach. The center is dedicated to supporting youth and their families as they fight for their destinies. We believe that to become a Champion you must have a dream, a plan, positive habits, friends and family that encourage and enable you to become the best you in the world!
