We unite local creatives, connecting them with families/individuals coping with trauma (foster, adoptive, human trafficking victims, etc.)  

Kyle and Elizabeth Ford started City of Refuge, Inc. as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in 2016 as a way to help support families coping with trauma. As foster parents, they saw the need of better support systems for foster/adoptive families, but also how visual arts, music, and the maker arts could help someone find their story and better cope with feelings of anger, depression, anxiety, etc. Now, we create a community of local creatives using interactive concerts and workshops, better equip families and individuals coping with trauma through workshops, and connect the two together through mentorship opportunities.
