We offer emergency shelter in a confidential locations, safety planning and advocacy on a 24-hour in-house crisis line, non-residential advocacy in cooperation with the Portland Police Domestic Violence Response Unit, and transitional housing and advocacy services to survivors of domestic violence enrolled in the Transitional Housing Program. Nearly 100 families are served in the emergency shelter each year, and more than 5,000 calls are offered safety planning and advocacy on our in-house crisis line.

Raphael House serves a diverse community of women and children escaping domestic violence and also works to eliminate the causes of family and intimate partner violence through community education and outreach.
