City of Refuge
He’s a preacher from the hills of Virginia who brought his wife and five daughters to live in one of the most dangerous areas of Atlanta. Fought off car thieves, addicts, and deranged would-be killers. And took it upon himself to fight the city’s worst problems and create a refuge for those who needed it. Why? Meet the man who was “conned by God.”
At City of Refuge, their mission is to bring hope, light and transformation to Atlanta. With almost two decades of experience and 20,000 lives transformed, City of Refuge is a leader in the business of social transformation. They are located in the middle of one of Atlanta's most impoverished and crime-ridden neighborhoods where nearly 40% of the residents live below the Federal Poverty Level. Their programs are designed to provide a direct impact in all areas and phases of life, such as housing, youth development, heath and wellness, and vocation.
