The River of Refuge has made a commitment to help the hidden homeless—families living for months, even years, at pay by the week motels in Kansas City. There are dozens of these expensive one room motels in the metro area with families in crisis. They often pay $800 to $1200 per
month for a one room living space.
The River of Refuge has purchased the former 150,000 sq. ft. Park Lane Hospital just outside the city limits of Raytown, in Kansas City, MO. The former hospital is being converted from a community eyesore to a community asset that helps needy working families move to a “place of dignity.”
