Women's Support Groups

The Refuge is a collection of programs run by Riverwood Church that respond to the needs of women in the Elmwood Community.  It is mentor-based program that provides both open and closed support groups based on different circumstances and needs.  We offer general support to young moms, and specific group supports to women dealing with domestic violence and addiction issues.
