A day at Rainbow Acres
Ralph's second book used the word "retarded" in the title. The word was deemed unacceptable and hurtful and has been replaced by the words "developmentally disabled". Adults you are unable to function as adults usually lead lonely lives. The vision of Rainbow Acres was a campus home with stimulating activities, busy schedules and spiritual development.
It is after forty years and lots of fundraising, a model campus with new comfortable group homes and apartments for high functioning individuals who often have jobs in town.
The staff is loving and gifted, each rancher has his or her own needs understood, the group dynamics are as great as they could be for these fortunate residents. We are blessed to be part of it.
