Raphael's Life House

© Copyright. All Rights Reserved


Covenant House is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization;
(EIN/Tax ID number: 13-3537710).

Raphael’s Life House was founded to provide housing for homeless pregnant women and their babies when born.  Our founders believe it is the right of pregnant women and their infants when born to be housed in a safe, secure environment.

"23 babies were cared for in our loving home last year."

At Raphael’s Life House we also believe in the personal dignity of each individual and endeavor to teach our residents the basic skills they need to prevent future homelessness regardless of race, color, creed or religious affiliation.

"Every mom has her own room and can stay 18 months from the time of intake."

At Raphael’s Life House we attempt to foster the pursuit of education, vocational training or employment so that our residents can lead satisfying, productive lives and prepare for independent living when they leave our program.

"Staff and talented volunteers provide classes to assist moms with prenatal care, parenting skills, building esteem, job seeking and other critical life skills."

Raphael’s Life House provides a safe and supportive living environment for homeless young women and their babies when born. We offer a continuum of services to help the new mothers develop the skills and values needed for responsible parenthood.
