The Town Center at Raphael Village will be located at 530 Jackson Avenue and will serve as the hub for our urban life-sharing village. In addition to administrative offices, the Town Center will include a community cafe serving breakfast and lunch, a catering kitchen that will provide both training and employment opportunities for Guild members, classrooms for pre-employment and vocational training, and artist studios where Guild members will practice and develop an artisanal trade. The grounds and gardens surrounding the Town Center will be part of an ongoing edible landscape curriculum and provide vegetables and herbs for the café.

“Since the beginning of the pandemic we have struggled to find a way to mimic the community that Raphael Village offers our son. The isolation of some of our members since the pandemic began exacerbates their limited social skills and emphasizes how unique and important the sense of community and involvement that Raphael Village provides are. The new town center will provide a wonderful place for their sense of community.”
Construction restarted June 22, 2020 once the Mississippi river fell below 13’ (a requirement for projects under construction within 1500 feet of the levee). Construction is estimated to be complete in spring of 2021.
