Share some ❤️ with families experiencing homelessness and the dedicated essential staff at Raphael House!

Valentine’s Day is a wonderful time to make the people in your community feel appreciated. Join our “For the Love of Giving” campaign from the comfort of your home in making Valentine’s Day Cards and sharing them with parents, children, and essential staff at Raphael House. Anyone can join the fun!

Here’s how you can get involved this Valentine’s Day!

Make Cards for Our Community

Break out your craft supplies and get creative! Once you choose a card design (click here for inspo from last year’s event), write a message of support for Raphael House families or essential staff and drop them off at Raphael House on Thursday, February 11th between 2 pm – 4 pm. We will set up a staffed table for card drop-offs at the entrance to our Family Services Building directly to the left of the main entrance of Raphael House.

You can also mail cards (envelopes not required!) to: Raphael House, Attn: Kellen Sarver, 1065 Sutter Street, San Francisco, CA 94109.
