About Us

Awaken (formerly CPR or Called Pray Respond) is a local outreach ministry consisting of people from Refuge united by a desire to join the fight against human trafficking. Their emphasis is to bring awareness, to educate, and to mobilize our church in the battle against this evil.

To spread awareness, this ministry hosts movie screenings and guest speakers, and participates in local human trafficking awareness events.

Check back often for their updated calendar, and feel free to follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
