Rainbow Connects is a program at the new University Hospitals Rainbow Center for Women and Children that links patients and families to resources to address needs related to the social determinants of health such as: food insecurity; utility assistance; clothing; furniture; baby supplies etc. Rainbow Connects hosts two full time employees and relies heavily on volunteers. Volunteers screen patients and families for resource needs, direct them to helpful community resources to address those needs, and when possible, follow-up with screened participants to see if they were able to access the resource or have any additional needs. Volunteers work with each family to select 1-2 resources that are seen as a priority.
Please note that this is a YEAR-LONG service commitment for the entire 2023-2024 academic year.
