Since our inception, Rainbow House has worked collaboratively with local and state agencies and organizations to increase the efficiency of direct services and to achieve a greater impact of success while avoiding duplication of services. As determined by our staff, our focus includes prevention, education and early intervention services relative to each child’s health and wellness. Food, clothing, medical and dental care and tutorial services are offered to each child in the program.
