About Rainbow Acres

Rainbow Acres is a Christian community with heart that empowers persons with developmental disabilities to live to their fullest potential with dignity and purpose. We provide exceptional housing, life-enriching programs, and loving, holistic care in a safe, vibrant, inclusive ranch-style community. Our residents are neurodivergent individuals—all with unique abilities.

Our residents, called Ranchers, are valued as individuals. Each is important, personally known by caregivers and staff, and nurtured to live a happy and full life. Ranchers live, work, and socialize with their peers on the ranch, and are also important members of the local community, where many Ranchers work, volunteer, take classes, and participate in activities.

Rainbow Acres is anchored in the core values of faith, hope, love, and compassion, and the principles of the Golden Rule deliver all care. These values become part of each Rancher, caregiver, and employee and manifest in a friendly community filled with remarkable and authentic joy and growth. The Ranchers’ new milestones, miracles, and expanded capabilities are witnessed daily. It’s a place where friends become family, and Rainbow Acres becomes home.

Rainbow Acres offers a private-pay assisted living community with various programs for developmentally disabled adults.
