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. Our emphasis is to bring awareness, to educate, and to mobilize Refuge in the battle against this evil.

To spread awareness, we host movie screenings and guest speakers, and participate in local human trafficking awareness events.

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

Upcoming Events

Craft Night Fundraiser

Fri Nov 15 @ 7pm in the Refuge cafe

The Refuge family (aged Junior High and up) are invited to come assemble bead bracelets for victims of human trafficking and learn more about what Refuge and our partners are doing to fight this modern-day evil.

Childcare will not be provided. All proceeds go toward Refuge for Women, a partner ministry of ours.

“[The] bracelets are handed out to victims of sex trafficking every Friday night on "The Track" in Santa Ana. The bracelets have a poem telling them they are loved by God, and a national text number to get them help. These bracelets are used to start the conversation to encourage the victims to [escape].”
