Rainbow House

What We Do

Rainbow House provides a free, safe emergency shelter and a comfortable home for children to play, eat, do homework, and receive help during crisis. We provide protection for child victims of sexual and physical abuse.

Why We're Great

For more than 32 years, we have served the community and delivered on the promise to keep children safe from abuse and neglect and support families in crisis such as homelessness, sickness or tragedy.

Why does your organization deserve community financial support?

We have met local needs since 1986, and 50% of the necessary shelter funding comes from you. THANK YOU! Our services are unique, un-duplicated, and vital to Columbia. We have the only Children's Emergency Shelter and Child Advocacy Center in the area!
