Rainbow has always been about families with children with special needs helping other families. The support of somebody who has “been there, done that” is so valuable. We offer information, training and support!
Rainbow Connection is a Family Resource Center in Ventura County that serves people with developmental disabilities and other special needs and their families. Rainbow is staffed by parents of children and adults with special needs, we draw from our own experiences. We understand the daily joys and challenges of parenting a child or adult with special needs. Whether you are just starting your journey with a baby in the hospital or you are a family member looking at aging issues for someone with special needs, we are here for you to meet and find support, information and training. We are great listeners and can assist families with problem solving.
Our staff and families work together in relationships based on equality and respect. We believe that every person should be valued, respected, and given the opportunity to reach their fullest potential. We are dedicated to build sensitivity, knowledge and understanding between individuals, families, professionals and the community with sincerity and confidentiality. Our principles of family support are modeled in all program activities, including planning, governance and administration.
