It is the goal of the Refuge, to provide assistance for physical, emotional, academic and spiritual needs of Johnson County and surrounding Marion County residents. We are more than just a local food pantry. We are a faith based community outreach center that is supported by local churches, organizations, businesses and individuals. We rely on the gifts, talents and wisdom of our community to be available to those in need. We value our volunteers, board members, supporters, but most importantly our clients. We feel it is a privilege and responsibility to serve, and are grateful for the opportunity. We strive to be the best stewards of what we have been entrusted with.
