Our vision is to establish a new integrated urban village supporting individuals living with disabilities. Click here to open a pdf brochure regarding our plans for the village.
In response to recent demand and projected growth, this exciting initiative will expand our facilities and create a hub for our new 'urban village'.
Raphael Village will provide education, job and life-skills training, social opportunities, and supported living.
The hub, our town center, will include additional classrooms, an artist guild, community performance space and a café.
We believe Raphael Village is the next evolution of the Camphill community model where people who are differently-abled are fully integrated members of society and valued as functioning members of the community in which they live, learn and work.
Our mission is to meet our students and adults with reverence and compassion for who they are what they endure; and to educate them wholly, awakening their full potential as unique individuals, so that they may be actively involved in life and engaged in community.
