For over forty years, Raphael House has been a leader in family services in San Francisco. We work with parents and families to lay the foundations for a lifetime of healthy development, achievement and stability. Long after a family departs to stable housing, our staff, volunteers and Board of Directors remain committed to the lifetime success of each of our families through a spectrum of AfterCare services. Our Residential Shelter Program has a proven history of providing the foundation for healthy growth and development of children and families. What began as a homeless drop-in shelter has grown into a full service family support center where families thrive.
