Raphael House provides life-saving services to adults and children escaping domestic violence while engaging the community in nonviolent living through advocacy, education and community outreach. We offer resources and personalized support to help survivors obtain housing, employment, stability and safety.
Bottom Line for Portland
Raphael House helps families end the cycle of violence and rebuild their lives after abuse. Annually, they reach 3,800 domestic violence survivors and community members through emergency shelter, housing assistance, ongoing support, and violence and sex-trafficking prevention. Eighty-one percent of survivors who once stayed in Raphael House's shelter now live in safe housing.
“Coming to Raphael House was the best thing I’ve ever done for my family. I felt empowered and safe for the first time in my life. I know the cycle of violence ends with me.”
