On-site Group Volunteer Opportunities
Help keep our Residential Shelter clean and organized! We are excited to welcome back small groups of on-site volunteers into our Residential Shelter to help with projects such as cleaning common areas of the shelter, organizing donations, or wrapping birthday gifts.
Because we serve a vulnerable population, there are safety measures in place to ensure the health and safety of families, staff, and our volunteers. For the time being, we will be hosting one group opportunity per month for groups of 5-10 masked and fully vaccinated volunteers.
Please note, our Corporate & Community Partners will be prioritized for volunteer opportunities.
Organize a donation drive for needed items
Donations of essential items to Raphael House help families maintain financial stability. We can provide a customized Amazon wish list for groups.
Organize an online fundraiser
Get your friends, family, or employees involved in a giving campaign by starting your own fundraiser! You can find instructions to start your own fundraiser here. All funds raised directly support families in our Residential Shelter and Bridge Program. You can also set up your own Facebook fundraiser in just a few clicks.
Schedule a Lunch & Learn presentation
If your company or group would like to learn more about Raphael House and how to get involved, schedule a Lunch & Learn presentation with our Executive Director Marc Slater and Community Engagement Manager Kellen Sarver.
Offer your remote services pro bono
As a community supported organization, we rely regularly on the generosity of individuals who contribute their time and expertise by way of providing professional services pro bono that benefit our families directly or Raphael House as a whole.
Create a short video presentation for children or adults
Pre-recorded videos on a variety of topics have been appreciated by Raphael House parents and children, especially throughout the pandemic. Topics can include interview tips, resume building skills, understanding credit scores, how to use Gmail on your phone, step by step art project tutorials, or a kid friendly mindfulness, stretching, or yoga how-to. Video presentations should be under 10 minutes in length and our staff can coordinate with you to identify a video topic you would be interested in sharing.
