our history

The Refuge started as a program of the A&B Winstrom Christian Family Foundation a 501(c)(3) non profit. It was started to offer practical guidance to adolescence, pre-adolescence, young adults and parents.

The ReFuge started with a couple who feel strongly about investing in young people. As they realized how limited support was, they decided to start a family foundation with its purpose of helping youth. Eventually this lead to them meeting Tammy Lindell, a Licensed Clinical Pastoral Counselor, now the director, they teamed up and the ReFuge was birthed. The ReFuge has been thriving the last three years, lives have been transformed and the need continues to grow.

Eventually a collaboration formed with a program at Birthline Inc. called HEART, Health Education And Relationship Training. With Tammy as the former HEART Coordinator for Birthline, a relationship started on how to bring a message to more youth and equip them with basic understanding and tools necessary to reach their dreams and goals in life and their relationships. Starting January 1st, 2013, the ReFuge and Birthline joined forces. The two have merged their programs to have the best impact on young lives in Central Minnesota. Now the ReFuge has become a program of Birthline Inc. Expanding and growing this program to reach more youth and young adults than ever before. With a new young adult program and mentoring the impact will be even greater.
