Rainbow House, Inc.

Rainbow House family resource center was founded in 1988 by a group of concerned community members to provide temporary shelter for children referred to the Department of Family and Children Services, the Department of Juvenile Justice, and the Immigration and Naturalization Service. As the need for such an agency grew, the shelter added a teen wing, administrative offices, a family visitation room, and a conference room. The program is licensed by the Office of Regulatory Services to accommodate 22 children and adolescents, including two infants. Currently, the shelter averages 15 children daily with an average length of stay of approximately 35-40 days.

Over the years, referrals have come from a wide range of counties in the Southern Crescent (Clayton, Fayette, Spalding), in counties all over metro Atlanta including Gwinnett, Douglas, Newton, Rockdale, and in outlying counties as well (Lamar, Butts, Upson).

Rainbow Connection CAAC was created in 2001 as a second program component of Rainbow House, Inc. which had existed since 1988 as an emergency shelter for children who had been removed from their homes due to abandonment, neglect, or abuse. Upon its inception, an inter-agency agreement was signed between Rainbow Connection and Clayton County Department of Family and Children Services, the Clayton County Police Department, the Clayton County District Attorney, Rainbow Medical Associates, Clayton County Juvenile Court, and the Clayton County Mental Health Department. This agreement recognized the need for an advocacy center in the county and ensured commitment to the mission of fulfilling this need. Since 2001, Rainbow Connection has served over 800 children and their non-offending caregivers.

Rainbow House, Inc. maintains affiliation with Child Advocacy Centers of Georgia, the Child Welfare League of America, the Southeastern Network, Georgia Association of Homes and Services for Children, the National Children’s Alliance, and Georgia Emergency Stabilization and Assessment Centers.
