House of Refuge Awarded $25,000 Grant

House of Refuge was awarded a $25,000 grant in support of the “Adopt a Home” program. The “Adopt a Home” is one of House of Refuge’s sponsorship programs which provides an opportunity for organizations like Thunderbirds Charities to sponsor a house for an entire year in the House of Refuge community. These sponsorships provide families experiencing homelessness a safe home and essential services for an entire year.

Nancy Marion, executive director at House of Refuge says that the work her agency does aligns perfectly with Thunderbirds Charities mission. “One part of Thunderbirds Charities mission statement reads ‘to assist children and families, help people in need and improve the quality of life in our communities.’ What better way to support that mission than to partner with an agency like House of Refuge, that provides housing and wrap around support services for families as they strive to overcome their cycles of homelessness”  Marion said. “Thank you Thunderbirds Charities for your commitment to the families and children in our community that simply need a helping hand as they heal and get back on their feet and on to a brighter tomorrow.”

Located on 20 acres in Southeast Mesa, House of Refuge is a 501c3 organization that provides safe, stable and affordable transitional housing for families experiencing homelessness. The Thunderbirds Charities grant will support two homes in the 88-home House of Refuge community.  For more information, check us out at
