MARINETTE — Rainbow House Domestic Abuse Services Inc. received a $5,000 grant from the Community-Wide Endowment held at the M&M Area Community Foundation.

Rainbow House Domestic Abuse Services Inc​ ​will use this grant to support the survivor emergency fund. This fund helps survivors of domestic violence to stabilize their lives, provide for their emotional and physical needs, participate in the criminal justice system, and restore a measure of safety to their lives. Services covered by this fund could include anything from home security installation to therapy services or car repair to help survivors of domestic violence feel secure and capable during a difficult chapter of their lives. The Rainbow House’s prime service is the safety and empowerment of all victims and their children and the emergency fund is a large way of supporting that service.

Executive Director Courtney Olson said “Rainbow House is so grateful for the continued support of our agency’s mission. Through the generosity of the M&M Community Area Foundation, survivors of domestic violence in our community have been better able to access resources and feel better control over their own lives.”

The Rainbow House serves the Marinette, Menominee and Oconto county communities with the support of volunteers and financial partners.
