#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement on December 3rd that has been built by individuals and communities around the world. Raphael House is a 100% community-supported organization, so every act of generosity counts.
Last year, Raphael House provided services to 238 families in our Residential Shelter and post-shelter Bridge program. That’s 1,056 individuals! Your #GivingTuesday donation provides Bay Area families experiencing homelessness with shelter, nutritious meals, wellness and children’s services, career development coaching, and more. With your support, we can meet our $10,000 Giving Tuesday goal to continue our supportive services at Raphael House!
This year, our Board of Directors is matching donations until we reach $5,000! That means your gift will be doubled and provide extra support for families who need it most.
