Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

Rakhma Homes is a Twin Cities non-profit organization serving those with memory loss (Alzheimer's disease or dementia). We have 4 homes located in St. Paul, Minneapolis, Golden Valley and Minnetonka. Our mission is we are dedicated to preserving the dignity of individuals with memory loss by providing loving, compassionate care in a familiar home setting. We follow a person-centered care plan that is unique to each individual's needs and interests. Rakhma encourages families and friends to visit often and stay for a meal or join them on a fun outing.
Rakhma Inc. has 4 residential homes in the Twin Cities area. Each home have a capacity of 10-15 residents.
Rakhma is not "a home"; rather, it is home, where friends sing together, take walks together, and forgive repeated stories. At Rakhma, families and friends are invited to drop in for a visit and all are encouraged to participate in the daily activities of the house: watering plants, peeling potatoes, folding towels, or simply enjoying the company of others.
Volunteers must be at least 16 years old to volunteer at Rakhma Homes.
I have volunteered with Rakhma Homes since February of 2017 and have been made to feel most welcome, I now have the honor of helping on the Harmony home outings weekly.
Rakhma truly is a 'home' in the real sense of the word, residents are treated like cherished family and the home that I visit in Golden Valley is very comfortable like a real home and not a 'nursing home'.
