Why I Support Raphael House
Mireille Schwartz
Bay Area Allergy Advisory Board

“My daughter and I have been involved in philanthropy and volunteer work at Raphael House for more than a year now. From the first moment I met Father David and his wife I knew this was a wonderful, safe oasis for families in transition.

It’s my pleasure to contribute to the new beginnings for these families – and Raphael House’s sensible, calm and sane approach to helping people with a long-term strategy for financial stability has an almost 100% success rate! Families who arrive at Raphael House in despair and near-ruin are lovingly and respectfully given tools to build their own future, guided by Father David and his staff.

It’s truly God’s work on Earth, and I consider myself extremely fortunate to have been asked to support this organization.”
