Programs

Raphael House of Portland is a multi-faceted domestic violence prevention/intervention agency dedicated to fighting the causes and effects of intimate partner violence in a variety of ways. We offer emergency shelter in a confidential location, safety planning and advocacy on a 24-hour in-house crisis line, non-residential advocacy in cooperation with the Portland Police Bureau, and transitional housing and advocacy through our Transitional Housing Program. Nearly 100 families are served in the emergency shelter each year, and over 5,000 callers are offered safety planning and advocacy on our crisis line. An additional 400 survivors receive non-residential advocacy services each year. Raphael House is the largest shelter in Multnomah County, providing more than 30% of the bed space for domestic violence survivors. Each year we serve nearly 100 families in our shelter (and show at least 97% utilization of bed capacity - a rate 13% higher than the rate of utilization across all the shelters in Multnomah County). 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 educational outreach in the community.
