Your purchases help end homelessness for families, Veterans, youth and others who are homeless and impacted by poverty.

·   Stop in and shop!  We offer new and gently-used clothing, household items, furniture and more.

·   Ultimate "shop for a cause." When you shop at the Rainbow Connection, your purchases benefit the mission of EUMA – helping to end homelessness for your neighbors in need.


Your donations help end homelessness in our community.

·   When you donate your new and gently-used clothing, furniture and household items - you are helping to end homelessness.  All sale proceeds benefit EUMA programs serving those who are homeless and in-need.

·   Your donations may also be given directly to those in need. The Rainbow Connection Voucher Assistance Program provides free clothing and necessities to EUMA clients, as well as adults and children from 24 local shelters and social service organizations.

Last year, the Rainbow Connection distributed more than $60,000 worth of goods to those who could not afford these items.
