Raphael House provides lifesaving services to adults and children escaping domestic violence—while also working to prevent future abuse through education. We proudly offer gender-inclusive, culturally responsive support to help survivors obtain the housing, employment, stability and safety they deserve.
Bottom Line for Portland
We help families end the cycle of domestic violence and rebuild their lives after abuse. Annually, Raphael House reaches more than 5,250 survivors and community members through confidential emergency shelter, housing assistance, ongoing support, and violence and sex-trafficking prevention workshops in local schools. As rates of abuse have spiked during the pandemic, we’ve continually offered 24-hour shelter and hotline assistance, while supporting 475-plus survivors in staying safe, stable and housed.
Donations of $50 or more will be matched by an anonymous donor, up to $8,000! They will also match all gifts from donors ages 35 and under, up to $2,000.
“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
