On Friday, December 2nd, Berman DeValerio's San Francisco office volunteered at Raphael House family shelter. Raphael House is a privately funded, community-supported organization, which provides homeless and low-income families in the San Francisco Bay Area personalized family-centered solutions, including transitional housing along with mental health counseling, career services, and educational workshops, children's programs and tutoring, to help at-risk families achieve stable housing and financial independence while strengthening family bonds and personal dignity.
Each year, the Raphael House receives about $25,000 in donated gifts for at-risk families currently residing in Raphael House and for about 150 families who have moved on to stable housing. Nineteen members of the San Francisco office wrapped some of these gifts and decorated Christmas trees in the shelter.
