NOTE OUR NEW LOCATION AT SE UPLIFT!
Donation Drop-off events are held the first Thursday of each month from 11AM-1PM and on the third Thursday from 5-7PM at SE Uplift (3534 SE Main St, Portland, OR 97214). Knock on the glass doors when you arrive, and one of our volunteers will assist you. Donations will only be accepted at this location during the above days and times!
Please note: we do not accept any used clothing, used toys, or furniture items. Only gently used kitchen items in good, working condition will be accepted. Click here for a Community Resource List with other donation options.
The generosity of community members like you make our programs possible! Thank you for helping us shelter and support families fleeing domestic violence.
General operating funds are our greatest need at all times! While we rely on the community to donate vital supplies and sincerely appreciate this in-kind support, Raphael House must also raise 2/3 of our emergency shelter budget each year. To make a monetary contribution or learn more about supporting us financially, please click here.
