Mission Statement

Our mission is to impact lives of individuals, embody the spirit of hope, improve communities, and make our communities a better place to live.

Description

Operation Refuge was officially founded in 2008 as a 501(c)(3) organization, but the seeds of the organization were planted 8 years before. In 2000, Mother’s Pantry began operating out of Christ Temple City of Refuge Church and grew out of Mother Greenwood’s vision to serve vulnerable communities. There was an increased need for food assistance after the nearby GM plant closed down. People were suddenly out of work and struggling to meet basic needs. As a pantry without borders and Inkster’s only client-choice food pantry, Mother’s Pantry continues to fulfill the emergency food needs of communities.

Staff and volunteers identified another pertinent community need and began tutoring youth. In 2008, Gap Dwellers after school tutoring evolved into Camp Inspire due to a lack of opportunity for girls of color in STEAM fields. Camp Inspire began as a summer program for girls that helps them recognize their potential through life-changing, transformational experiences and exposure to STEAM projects. Our robust program is celebrating its 6th year this summer and continues to positively impact lives. We also operate a Leaders in Training (LIT) program which helps teens develop the skills they already have inside--encouraging them to make a positive difference in their own lives and in their community.
