Refreshing Springs

"Love 2 Life", Making a Difference One Shower at a Time

Who We Are

Refreshing Springs Shower Outreach is an outreach ministry of In His Presence Apostolic Ministry, Inc. It is the manifestation of a divine unction, born out of our human desire to assist those in need: the homeless, those living out of their own cars, the displaced, the abused, social outcasts and rejects in our community by providing access to showers.

This 21st century’s view of the new face of homelessness in our community is the driving force that propels our passion to dream the impossible, to inspire the uninspired, and to reach the unreachable, to touch the untouchable, to equip the unequipped and to love the unloved.

We are an outreach who loves sincerely by promoting community health and good hygiene, cleansing the body through hot showers to build one’s self-esteem, self-confidence and self-worth.

The pulse of Refreshing Spring’s heartbeat is to Restore Dignity – One by One - offering Hope by lending a helping hand in times of distress. Our inner drive is to help those who have fallen through our culture’s cracks and crevices, those who are ostracized and kicked to the side in our society.

We want to offer essential tools of empowerment with required life skills to help them successfully overcome the misfortunes of life. Refreshing Spring’s motivation is to help reposition, rebuild and the restoration needed for re-entry into societal normalcy enabling the homeless to become productive members of the community. We embrace this challenge to LOVE2LIFE those in need and join our city, Petersburg, VA by becoming a solution in combating the dilemma of homelessness within our city.
