HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Refuge Church is expanding its Rooms of Refuge bedroom makeover program to include Madison County teens and children with life threatening illnesses.

“We can’t add more days to your life, but we can add more life to your days,” Refuge Church’s Lead Pastor Jason Parks said.

Refuge Church and Hospice Family Care created Rooms of Refuge in February 2014. So far, its faithful volunteers have recreated four different bedrooms.

Rooms of Refuge provides terminally ill kids throughout Madison County with free bedroom makeovers. Rooms of Refuge takes referrals from medical professionals, the children’s parents and the patients themselves. Children must be 18 years old or younger, diagnosed by a physician with a life-threatening medical condition, live in Madison County and the homeowner must sign a liability release.

Rooms of Refuge is funded by Refuge Church and donations from the community. You can make a donation by visiting findrefugehere.com/give.
