How will my contributions be used?
Your donation provides Success Coaching for residents in the Aspire & Thrive programs at Rainbow Village which focuses on 5 core pillars leading to self-sufficiency: Family Stability, Well-being, Financial Management, Education and Training and Employment and Career.
A portion of each donation is allocated for micro grants that are awarded directly to residents or alumni through an application process.
