Want to get involved? Raphael House needs your help!
Show your support - give a tax-deductible gift (click here to contribute online!), volunteer in the shelter or at one of our special events, host a donation drive, or invite a Raphael House staff member to give a presentation about domestic violence at your place of work, church or school!
Join the Speak Out Crew Sign up online to give just $10 each month and you’ll be part of The Crew! To you, that’s like donating the cost of a couple lattes each month, but to the families we serve, every pledge will pay for one safe night in our emergency shelter. Speak Out Against Violence - Join The Crew!
Volunteer your time We have a wide variety of volunteer opportunities, both in the shelter and out at special events in the community.
Host a House Party House Parties are informal fundraisers hosted by anyone who wants to get involved in the movement to end violence and support Raphael House. Learn more by downloading our helpful brochure, Hosting a House Party!
Donate your used car You get a tax write-off and Raphael House gets the net proceeds from the sale - Cars4Charities and Cars 4 Causes both offer free nationwide pick up of your vehicle.
