Tri-Met bus tickets are one of our biggest monthly expenses. If you purchased a Chinook Book this year, there are bus tickets in the back of your book. Or consider purchasing a booklet of Adult or Youth tickets the next time you’re at Fred Meyers or Safeway. Donating them to Raphael House will help defray transportation costs for the families we serve.
