This is the Keenan Family!  They have been serving the abandoned children and struggling families in Bucharest, Romania since 2013.  Their hearts are to share the hope and love of Jesus with kids and families that are lost and have no hope. Costi was once an orphan himself, but a family showed him Jesus through love and family. Costi and Elizabeth want to give the same hope and future to the lost and abandoned kids in Romania.  They know through Jesus, that it is possible!


Overview of Ministry

Keenan Refuge Ministries, Inc. (Refuge Center Romania) is a faith based, non-profit organization, established in 2016 in Bucharest, Romania that provides hands on mentoring and social services to children who have been orphaned or abandoned.  We provide a safe, relationship-based environment where body, soul, and mind are nurtured to create a healthy personal development and biblical worldview. We also reach out to at-risk families to educate, encourage and provide in order to prevent future abandonment of their children.   We come alongside broken families by providing counseling, encouragement, support, and direction in order to reunite them with their abandoned children. All through these steps we share the love of Jesus Christ and the hope that only He can provide.



Every year our organization runs a camp in order to bring these children away from their daily struggle to a place where they can run free.  Our team daily pours the love of Christ into the hearts of these kids by spending quality time with them, sharing Christ through Bible Studies, and filling each day with fun activities that continuously builds their relationship with our Lord.
