Our Mission

Hope + Employment

As a social enterprise of True To Life Ministries, our store is a living classroom for TTLM’s 18-month Job Training Program where young men and women learn fundamental job skills while working to overcome barriers standing between them and long-term, gainful employment. Past Job Trainees have celebrated many accomplishments: overcoming homelessness, earning a GED, becoming the first in their family to go to college, moving from tendencies of self-harm to self-confidence.

Refresh also provides complimentary interview outfits for women who graduate from TTLM’s Employment 101 classes. Hundreds of men and women participate in TTLM’s Employment 101 classes each year, where they learn everything they need to know about getting their next job. Because first impressions are so important in the job search, TTLM provides vouchers for graduates to shop for professional interview attire – men receive vouchers to local thrift stores, and women receive vouchers to Refresh.

You can enjoy guilt-free shopping at Refresh, knowing that when you make a purchase, you make a difference. By supporting Refresh, you help provide life-changing employment and lasting hope for men and women who are ready to learn, improve, and grow.
