What moves you? Join us on October 5, 2019 for the Ride for Refuge, a family-friendly cycling and walking fundraiser that supports charities who provide refuge and hope for displaced, vulnerable and exploited people everywhere.
The Rescue Centers are groups of homes for orphan children residing in 40 houses on three properties. We also have 20 homes for adults coping with AIDS. They live in these houses with their own children. Twenty-seven destitute elderly women live in two Granny Houses.
Rescue receives adults coping with AIDS if they have children they are caring for and if they are sick and have spent all their resources trying to get better, leaving them homeless. Many elderly women lost their husbands and children during the Khmer Rouge era or, later, because of the AIDS crisis. If they are sick and homeless, Rescue welcomes them to come live at the Center. Children are welcomed if their mother has died or if the Department of Social Services has deemed the mother unfit to care for her children. Rescue does not receive children simply because their parents are poor or desire to leave their children somewhere so that they can work.
