Who is The Refuge

The Refuge is staffed by both volunteers and professionals with the common task and goal to serve the Detroit Lakes community.

We Love Our Volunteers

We at The Refuge provide an outreach to the community. To do this, we rely on a team of volunteers. Whether it's cooks, janitors, building and grounds, or helping with special events, our volunteers make it happen.
