Your opinion matters. Leave your review of Rainbow House - Children's Emergency Shelter.

Description: Rainbow House is a children's emergency shelter. Children (birth to eighteen) may be admitted through our Crisis Care Program. This is truly a "prevention" service in that it gives the parent respite time to establish stability in their lives, possibly preventing abuse or neglect to the child.

We provide a safe place for children at no cost to the family for family medical emergencies, parents entering drug or alcohol rehabilitation programs, for homelessness, and a variety of other reasons.

Children may be admitted by Children's Division because they have been removed from their home and are awaiting foster placement.

With our home like environment and nurturing house parents, we hope to return the feeling of family and stability to each child at the Shelter.

We help families find resources and stability to do the best for the children and parents.

Volunteers Requests by Rainbow House - Children's Emergency Shelter: Volunteers are vital to the work we do. We have volunteers that come in groups to clean, organize, or do yard work. We use volunteers in the shelter to work with the children as well. Our volunteer application can be found on the website, or by stopping at our office.
