Over the last 30 years, we’ve grown in more than just square footage. We’re remembering our roots, reflecting on our history serving families and laying the groundwork to make our next 30 years even better.
The paths that lead to experiencing homelessness vary greatly, but the commonality is that residents arrive in survival mode. Our programming guideline for residents focuses on Family Stability, Well-being, Financial Management, Education & Training, and Employment & Career.
Homelessness is a traumatic event, and healing requires both guidance and time. Our programs are each tailored to meet the needs of our residents throughout their journey. Learn more about each program below.
I came to Rainbow Village alone, scared and beaten down. I had left an abusive marriage and had to leave my hometown and support system. I was able to find a job, but with two children, my small salary was barely enough to make ends meet. My car was in need of an unexpected repair and with no savings, I had to choose between making the repair and keeping my job or losing my job and paying one more month’s rent. My credit cards were maxed out and we were put on a path to eviction.
I came into Rainbow Village so overwhelmed. Rainbow Village showed me that I was capable of rebuilding my life. I have learned what family truly means. I’ve learned how to reach out, get help, and help those in need around me. I’m paving the way for my children and they’re learning some important life skills along with me. Rainbow Village has brought me a sense of peace that will stay with me long after we move on to our next chapter.
