Nonprofit Dedicated to Breaking the Cycles of Homelessness, Poverty and Domestic Violence Receives Technology Services Grant
Launched in 1991 as a faith-based organization focused on helping homeless families, Rainbow Village has grown by leaps and bounds over the course of the last three decades. Once based out of Christ Episcopal Church in Norcross as Rainbow House, the nonprofit could serve up to two families at a time with transitional housing.
Today, this self-described “community of transformation” boasts a sprawling campus of five apartment buildings and an early childhood development center designed to serve up to 30 families at a time through its comprehensive program of life skills classes, counseling, youth mentoring, child care and so much more. Unfortunately, like many nonprofits, Rainbow Village has been relying heavily on largely outdated technology. Through the Dream Big Grant Fund, a technology service grant recently awarded by TechBridge®, this community of transformation will be able to undergo a little transformation of its own.
