Raphael House is 100% privately funded, and your donation makes a direct impact to the hundreds of Bay Area families we serve each year.
Thank you for your support.
Feed a Family
Did you know? Every night at 5:30pm, Raphael House families eat a warm meal together. Eating dinner as a family is often listed as a favorite tradition by the children. $25 buys one warm family meal.
Every night at 7pm, the children gather for a bedtime story in their pajamas while their parents take classes at Raphael House? At the end of storytime, one honored child leads a parade with a candle, dropping off each child at their family’s room. $50 pays for the candle ceremony for one week.
Provide Family Memories
Did you know every family receives a professional family photo during their stay at Raphael House? We believe family bonds are as important as creating financial independence. This year, Raphael House will help x families move on to their own Home. $75 buys a professional family photo that is framed as a first housewarming gift.
Provide Comprehensive Support
Children at Raphael House receive art classes, karate classes, tutoring, counseling, and more. At Raphael House, we believe these activities provide therapy and build confidence, while helping our children to catch up to their peers. Children continue to come back for tutoring after they leave Raphael House. $100 buys a child an activity for 3 months.
