Grant helps kids


The Rainbow Connection is honored to be one of the three non-profit recipients for the 2018 Impact 100 Oakland County grant.  The Rainbow Connection will use its Impact100 Oakland County grant to support The Rainbow Connection Impact Kits for families experiencing a child facing a life threatening medical condition and difficulty meeting basic living expenses.  The Impact Kits are tailored to each family’s documented financial needs and includes assistance with gas, food, parking, public transportation and other emergent needs.  “This group has made it possible to address the quiet suffering these families are dealing with.  Our close relationship with Wish Families and hospital social workers has made us increasingly aware of the crippling financial burdens families face as they care for a sick child,“ George Miller, executive director explains.  “Things that many of us take for granted, including having enough money for every day expenses are situations that our Wish Families encounter and worry about on a daily basis.”  Since 1985, The Rainbow Connection has made dreams come true for more than 3,400 brave children in Michigan that have been diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition.  To learn more about The Rainbow Connection and to donate, visit or call 248-601-9474.
