Rainbow Acres is a Christian residential community located in the heart of Arizona. As a nonprofit organization founded in 1974, Rainbow Acres is celebrating 50 years of service to neurodiverse adults. The residents are 18+ with a primary diagnosis of a developmental disability. Rainbow Acres is a private-pay organization offering individualized living and health plans. This starts with helping the residents set appropriate goals to stretch and grow in physical and emotional health, education, vocational skills, money management, and semi-independent living. Residents most commonly have a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down Syndrome, developmental delay, ADHD, birth hypoxia, bipolar disorder, Asperger’s, anxiety, depression, and other rare disorders.

The milieu needs daily support but is ready to grow in their relationships, self-care, meaningful work, and hobbies like animals, greenhouse gardening, painting, weaving, fine arts, music, and all types of educational opportunities on a ranch-style campus. The residents volunteer within the local community and attend a myriad of events. Residents are coached in the executive functioning, emotional wellness, and life skills they need to succeed in adulthood. Rainbow Acres advocates for people throughout their lifespans within an assisted living license. The program includes medical and vocational support both on and off-site.

It’s a place where friends become family, and Rainbow Acres becomes home.
