We opened our doors in December, 1993, but the idea of providing a transitional residence for young homeless pregnant women began several years earlier...


We're home to 12 young women and their newborns. While here, new moms learn to become good parents with the ability to support themselves and their children.


There are countless ways you can help. Want to volunteer, schedule a tour, or do a collection in your school, organization, community center, church or temple?


From exciting Golf outings to a meaningful night Sleeping Out, there are many upcoming events that help support our vital programs.  Check out what's coming up!

Raphael's Life House is a transitional residence for women who are homeless and pregnant. Here they will find a place to rebuild their lives and give their children a positive start in life.

All women between the ages of 18 and 23 are welcome regardless of race, creed, color, national origin, or economic status. We welcome them and offer the help they need to begin their new lives with their new families.

We offer a continuum of services including classes on prenatal care and parenting, educational and vocational training, and life skills programs from budgeting to building self-esteem.

Raphael’s Life House is located in Elizabeth, New Jersey.
