Who is The Refuge

The Refuge Christian Outreach Center of Detroit Lakes is a Christ-based community outreach program with the purpose of reaching the lost and meeting the needs of the community. We strive to show God's Love to the community through programs like Our Daily Bread, Hopefest, The Compassion House, Celebrate Recovery, and more.

Starting in -insert year- by Mel Manning and his wife Shirley, The Refuge has served as a city on the hill, a light in the dark for the region. We provide free meals and food to those in need of a Helping Hand.
