The While We're Waiting Refuge


​All of our retreats are hosted at the While We're Waiting Refuge, a retreat facility in Hot Springs, Arkansas, which has been built and designed specifically with bereaved parents in mind.  Completed in October of 2016, the Refuge is nestled in the midst of tranquil thoroughbred farms in a quiet country setting with a stocked pond and fifty wooded acres on which to roam.  


The Refuge is specifically designed for the comfort of bereaved parents, with a welcome center, a large kitchen/dining area overlooking the pond, a comfortable and cozy meeting room, a library/sitting area, an expansive deck, and ten hotel-room style bedrooms, each with its own private bathroom.


There are no other guests present at the Refuge during our retreats, so we can fully relax and make ourselves at home for the weekend.  The Refuge is also fully accessible, with two handicapped-equipped guest rooms.







































We are offering parents the opportunity to sponsor areas of the Refuge in memory of their children in Heaven.  Below is our sponsorship agreement, which outlines levels of sponsorship, and the benefits which go along with each level (for example, naming rights to specific rooms, use of the facility, etc.).
