Raphael House provides lifesaving services to adults and children escaping domestic violence, while engaging the community in nonviolent living through prevention education and advocacy. We offer resources and gender-inclusive, culturally responsive support to help survivors obtain housing, employment, stability and safety.
Bottom Line for Portland
Raphael House helps families end the cycle of domestic violence and rebuild their lives after abuse. Annually, we reach 5,000-plus survivors and community members through confidential emergency shelter, housing assistance, ongoing support, and violence and sex-trafficking prevention. Eighty-one percent of survivors who stayed in our shelter now live in safe housing.
Donations of $50 or more will be matched by Guild Mortgage, up to $13,000. Guild Mortgage will also match the first $2,000 in gifts from donors ages 35 and under.
“My daughters and I have changed from victims to SURVIVORS! With Raphael House’s support, we’re stronger than ever. And we’ll continue to fight for the best for ourselves. I attribute a great deal of this success to the support we’ve continued to have through their programs.” —Celía, survivor
