Glenda’s Story

My name is Glenda. I am 52 years old and I have custody of five of my granddaughters. Before I came to Rainbow Village I was living in a duplex that was more than I could afford to pay for after the children’s mother was told that she could not longer live with us. Every month I was served an eviction notice and the utilities were disconnected. I didn’t know what to do. I thought that I was going to have to give the girls up. Then someone told me about Rainbow Village.

I moved in after Christmas and lived at Rainbow Village for about 11 months. I didn’t realize that there were so many caring people in the world. Everyone was so nice to us and helped us.

We no longer live at Rainbow Village. We have affordable housing now and are doing well. I hope that one day I will be able to buy a home of my own and give the girls a good education. I hope that some day I can help someone the way that I have been helped. It has changed my life forever.
