A profile in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution by columnist Gracie Bond Staples, titled “How an interior designer built a Rainbow Village for homeless” is a fulsome and fitting tribute to Rainbow Village CEO Nancy Yancey, who announced this week that she will be retiring December 31.
RAINBOW VILLAGE: TRANSFORMING LIVES FOR MORE THAN TWO DECADES
By U.S. Rep. Rob Woodall
When I think of those in our community who not only make a positive impact on the people around them, but in fact make us better as a whole, Nancy Yancey is without a doubt among them. Nancy has been at the helm of Rainbow Village for the last 24 years. She is a visionary leader who understands that in service to others, we are all stronger.
I’ve had the honor of watching Rainbow Village grow, develop, and serve more and more members of our community over the years, and all the while, there’s Nancy with her steady leadership guiding a truly inspiring team of individuals. The pride she feels for every family who has transitioned from homelessness to independence is infectious. More at U.S Representative Rob Woodall on the future of Rainbow Village.

Rainbow Village is a community of transformation for homeless families with children.
We break the cycle of homelessness, poverty and domestic violence. We teach adults and children to believe in themselves and to chart a new course towards a lifetime of self-sufficiency.
Here homeless families with children find refuge, recover, and learn to rebuild their lives in a safe haven. We are not a quick fix for an immediate crisis, but a long-term solution for the entire family.
