Welcome to The Refuge for Women – an online resource for all women who are suffering from mental illness, domestic violence, or substance abuse.
We know that women who are dealing with these issues often just need a safe place to explore resources and get the information that they need, which is why we started this website. Here you will find helpful resources and information on addiction, mental health disorders, and domestic violence.
This website was started by Celia Smith and Ronda Jones in the fall of 2017. The two women gathered to have coffee at least once a month. One evening during a coffee chat, they were discussing their volunteer work when Celia had the idea to start an informational website. The website could have a blog, a list of resources, and just be a refuge for women seeking information. And thus, this website was born.
We have a real passion for helping other women, and we want everyone in the world to understand that as women, we need to be supporting each other, standing up for each other, and helping each other. Don’t you agree?
At the end of the day, we’re all feminists. We all believe in empowering women. Women need to know that they can get help for these issues.
Have a look around our website, and don’t forget to contact us if you have any questions or suggestions. We love to get feedback.
