Rainbow Village is a transitional housing community for homeless families with children. Most of the heads of household at Rainbow Village are women who have fled lives full of domestic violence and poverty.
Rainbow Village residents aren’t merely seeking a safe place to live. They are seeking the opportunity to craft a new life for themselves and their children that is full of love, faith and promise.
Rainbow Village embodies the phrase “it takes a village.” We’ve set in motion a true “village” model where homeless families with children can find refuge, recover, and learn to rebuild their lives with the love and support of a community-based family surrounding them. Instead of a quick fix in times of crisis, Rainbow Village’s program offers a long-term solution through support services for the whole family.
Our goal is to break the cycles of homelessness, poverty, and domestic violence. We teach adults and children to believe in themselves again, charting a new course towards a lifetime of self-sufficiency.
