Restaurants for Raphael House

Since 2010, local restaurants have shown their support for survivors of domestic violence by participating in our annual dine-out fundraiser – donating at least 15% of their day’s proceeds to help fund our life-saving services. Last year 49 generous eatery partners helped provide more than 6 months of round-the-clock safety and support in our emergency shelter.

Contact Amanda Ives at (503) 243-5116 to learn more about participating in our May 2019 Restaurants for Raphael House fundraiser.

Host a Holiday Drive

Each December, we invite more than 115 of the families we’ve served to pick out presents for themselves and their children. These items are 100% donated, so community support is essential and helps bring joy and hope during the holiday season!

Organizing a Holiday Drive with coworkers or groups is a great way to make a difference, and we provide everything you need to make giving back easy. Request an Adopt-a-Family Wish List or Giving Tree Kit with handmade ornaments featuring a recipient’s age, name, and gift request.
