Sophia House Opens in West Oakland + Shocking Events of 9/11
Mar 4 2021
Children’s Program Director, Carol Cole, opens Sophia House in West Oakland. Sophia House is a separately incorporated agency working closely with Raphael House to provide a seamless delivery of service to former residents. AfterCare activities, in addition to daycare and respite care, are offered at Sophia House.
Events of September 11th shock the world. Some children are afraid to go up to play on the roof garden for several weeks, but Raphael House staff continues to offer support and care. Charitable giving is temporarily diverted on a national level.
