Description: Emergency winter shelter. Open at night only (7pm. – 7am.) Open November 1 to March 31. Meals

The mission of Rainbow Place is to provide women emergency overnight shelter during the winter months and assist them as they transition to a better quality of life.

Rainbow Place is an emergency shelter. We work with women at the very beginning of their transition out of homelessness. Our primary focus is to keep the women we serve safe and off of the streets during the harsh winter months.
