Preparing for Spring

Take a moment to calculate the value of what you are currently storing in your garage and compare that amount to your car parked on the street. Does it make sense?

Clutter, hoarding ….George Carlin hit the nail on the head.  While you are sorting out all those things you don’t need but others could use – consider donating them to our local non-profits e.g. the Assistance League Thrift Store on 4th St.

Nonprofit Spotlight

“Why is it important to be involved in Your neighborhood?”

“As a nonprofit agency within the Rose Park Neighborhood boundaries, it is vital for Safe Refuge to be a part of our community. Involvement in our neighborhood allows us to be proactive and gives a sense of pride, not only for our agency but most importantly for our clients. Volunteering and involvement in the community permits our clients a learning opportunity like no other. The experience is something we cannot provide without the assistance of entities like the Rose Park Neighborhood Association and the participation reveals a part of themselves they have not experienced for some time or for some clients, at any time.” – Arthur Romo, Safe Refuge

*Safe Refuge and its clients volunteer with the Rose Park Neighborhood Association for various events, and their role has evolved into a partnership. Safe Refuge contributes to several events throughout the year, including the set-up, refreshments and goodies for the Christmas Tree Lighting. Visit to learn more.
