Raphah is a Hebrew verb that mean to heal. It literally means to mend by stitching, very much like you would repair a torn garment. This is the vision and work of Raphah Institute. Structural and systemic defects in a community can leave many people tattered and torn - ripped - with very few healthy options to cope. Without opportunities for healing or transformation, the result is generational cycles of harm. What if we could confront those defects and interrupt those complicated, layered cycles? We believe we can, if we work together and focus on restoration, repair, and healing. When people have the opportunity and resources to thrive, they will.
