Our Mission & History

Our Mission

To provide a place of respite free of charge for parents and guardians of children with special needs or life threatening medical conditions where they will be refreshed, restored, and renewed in their role as caregivers.

Our Values

David’s Refuge allows parents and other caregivers much needed time to rest, reflect and recharge from the stress of full time care giving. We want others to know three things: that they are not alone, what they do matters, and there is a God who loves them.

Our Goals are to provide:

  • a quiet place to get away and be refreshed
  • a healing place where hope can be restored
  • a safe place where your vision can be renewed

California Trip

As parents of a child with special needs, we understand the feelings of isolation, exhaustion, and stress families experience in their role as caretakers.

We’ve wrestled with questions of faith, felt the sting of broken dreams, and have questioned whether what we were doing really mattered. Warren & Brenda Pfohl
