Why I Support Raphael House
Raphael House Board Member
“I’ve been involved with Raphael House for the past 16 years as a donor, volunteer and board member. I don’t think there is any other cause that I’ve been this passionate about and it’s mostly because of the simple things that Raphael House does right. As a donor, I’m always impressed by the handwritten thank you notes I receive regardless of the size of my donation.
The program is about families and children and providing a safe place for families to regroup and heal. And this is done with great respect and love. Family dinner, story time, bed time serenades, field trips, summer camp — things it is easy to take for granted — are all part of the program for the kids. Families who leave Raphael House stay connected and look fondly on their time on Sutter Street as a turning point.
Raphael House is an oasis of love and respect in an very tumultuous world. “
