Mission Statement | The Livermore Homeless Refuge exists to provide a clean, dry, warm and safe refuge for people who need a place to stay, regardless of race, creed, or religion.
Weather Forecast | If the weather forecast is greater than a 20% chance of rain or the temperature is 45 degrees or less, the Refuge will be open for our homeless guests to spend the night (assuming we have enough volunteers to staff the Refuge). The decision to open/close is made at 10:00 PM each night in consideration for the following day/evening.
Refuge Rotation | The Refuge rotates every three weeks among Asbury United Methodist, Vineyard Christian, and Holy Cross Lutheran churches, and 1st Presbyterian Church on the weekends, provided the conditions have been met to open the Refuge for the night
