"I feel like Raphael House is my family too."

- Aiden, age 8, Residential Program

OUR PHILOSOPHY At Raphael House, we see homelessness as a temporary state that doesn't define a person. We understand that homelessness can result from unexpected circumstances, whether economic, health-related, or because of a breakdown in family structure. We provide families an opportunity to take ownership of their futures and improve the quality of their lives through a nurturing and supportive process that emphasizes the importance of strong families and personal dignity. learn more

SHORT TERM Short-term volunteer opportunities are onetime projects or activities that do not require a commitment or application screening process. Short-term volunteers do not work directly with Raphael House residents or their children, and most volunteer as part of a group.
LONG TERM Long-term volunteer opportunities are for individuals who seek to make an ongoing commitment to supporting Raphael House staff in roles that usually involve regular interaction with Raphael House families and children. Long-term volunteers typically make a six-month to one-year commitment.
LIVE IN Our Residential Community Internship Program provides an opportunity for students and adult professionals from various faith backgrounds to participate in directly serving homeless and low-income families. By partnering with students and adult professionals from faith committees that are dedicated to issues of social justice and empowerment of those living in poverty, everyone benefits: the families that we serve, the congregations that we partner with, and our community at large.
