Our stable home-like shelter provides parents and children a warm and safe family-centered community where they participate in a wide range of services that strengthen the whole family as they work toward achieving long-term stable housing and financial independence. More than 85% of all the families we serve through our Residential Shelter Program go on to achieve long-term stable housing. Parents living at Raphael House receive intensive case management, housing and financial assistance, career-building and job placement services, mental-health counseling, and educational workshops in areas such as financial literacy, parenting, and wellness.
Children in our program receive services that support—and engage their parents in supporting—healthy emotional and intellectual development. Once families move on from Residential Shelter they have access to an extensive continuum of support through our Bridge Program.
