Don’t miss our upcoming Raphael House events, and these great options for getting involved through a business.

Become a Monthly Sustainer
Sustainers are there for us every month, so we can be here for survivors every day.

At Raphael House, we call monthly donors Sustainers because your gifts offer us the steady (and vital) funding that ensures our life-saving services are always here for survivors. This ongoing support also allows us to plan for the future, budget our resources, and continually enhance our programs in response to the changing needs of our community.

Your gift has the power to change lives, and every dollar makes a difference. Here’s the impact you’ll have each month as a Sustainer:

  • $10/month: Provides fresh produce for a week of healthy meals for a family in our emergency shelter.
  • $25/month: Covers cab fare so that a survivor can safely arrive at our shelter after fleeing abuse.
  • $50/month: Staffs one session of our weekly Latinas Unidas support group.
  • $100/month: Sponsors 24-hours of safety and round-the-clock support for a survivor or their child in our shelter.
  • $160/month: Funds a two-hour Prevention Education workshop in a local high school classroom.
