Together, we are building The Refuge Ranch. And together, we're decorating it with Dove Tiles! On May 1, 2018, we began installing the first Dove Tiles into the first kitchen backsplash in the first cottage. This is a time lapse video of the installation.
Together, we are building The Refuge Ranch. And together, we're decorating it with Dove Tiles!
Dove Tiles symbolize hope and healing. They are handpainted with your prayers and your words of inspiration to inspire the young survivors of sex trafficking while they are reclaiming their lives.
The Dove Tiles will be placed into tessellated murals all over the 50 acres of The Refuge Ranch. Originally, the plan was just have one mural outside in the common area of The Studio building. But so many people wanted to have a hands-on way to show the girls that they really do care, so The Dove Tile Project was born. Now we now have over 5000 tiles!
The beauty of this project is that it not only raises awareness about an overlooked crime in our society that desperately needs attention, but also demonstrates how the power of a community can really have an impact on the future of these girls’ lives.
Our hope is that each girl will recognize not only the physical beauty of the tile murals, which will appear throughout The Refuge Ranch, but also that people have been thinking about and praying for their peace and healing long before they even came to The Refuge.
