That Good May Become
Supporting differently-abled people in becoming fully engaged in life and community.
What is Raphael Village?
Raphael Village is an Affiliate Member of the Camphill Association of North America. We are a non-profit organization comprised of three programs—Raphael Academy, The Guild, and The Hearth—that aid differently-abled individuals in leading purposeful and enriching lives. We provide educational, vocational, and social inclusion support for individuals of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities. We support our students’ and members’ unique unfolding so that they may be actively engaged in life and community.
Raphael Academy is a state-licensed school for Kindergarten through 12th grade students with developmental disabilities. We are the only Curative Waldorf-inspired school in New Orleans dedicated to understanding and nurturing the varied abilities of all our special needs students.
The Guild is a day program for differently-abled individuals aged eighteen and older. Our day program provides members with continued academic education, as well as the vocational, social, and life skills necessary to lead full and purposeful lives in our community.
The Hearth is our future network of residential homes where adults with disabilities and their caregivers will cooperatively live together in a life-sharing community. We expect The Hearth to have established its first home by 2023.
