Our Story

The Mission:

Warrior’s Refuge is a grassroots ministry focusing on the forgotten; men, women, children, and families that have fallen through the cracks.  Offering more than a hand-out, we give a hand-up. Warrior’s is a place of Hope and believe it is by this that broken pieces are assembled together again. 
From job assistance for the unemployed to housing for those living in homelessness, Warrior’s Refuge serves a variety of needs in our community.  Providing food, formula, clothing, and household goods to transportation, identification cards and recovery resources the heartbeat of Warrior’s is assisting those in difficult times to know they are seen, heard, and cared for.  
Warrior’s is part of an ever growing network, working hand-in-hand with the City of Tulsa, local churches, non-profits, charities, and individuals to widen our ability reach those we serve. 

The Vision:

 Bringing awareness to our local community, ministries, charities, and neighbors of the needs directly outside our front doors.  Warrior’s Refuge is filling in the gap of being a very present help in time of need for the orphans and widows, the disenfranchised living in our community. Unifying relationships and networking with like-hearted organizations to abolish despair and breath hope is our vision.
