Thank you for your interest in our short-term Residential Shelter Program. Please note that Raphael House is not an emergency shelter. If you are a family with children under the age of 18 or a women in the last trimester of pregnancy and are in need of shelter or are interested in learning more about our Bridge Program services, the first step to our intake process is to set up a phone screening appointment. To start the process, please call our intake line at 415.345.7237.
Please call us from your own phone if you have one, borrow a phone from a friend or another service provider (Raphael House partners with agencies located in San Francisco and the Greater Bay Area), or locate a payphone. Please leave a message clearly saying your name and call back number, and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.
If you do not have access to a phone, please submit your inquiry by filling our our contact form and we will reach out to you as soon as possible. Please note that the fastest way to reach us and begin our intake process is by phone.
