Rainbow’s mission is to build community and promote wellness among LGBTQ+ people and our allies. We are the sole organization in Contra Costa County devoted to serving the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ+) community. Our current organizational priorities are to serve the most vulnerable and isolated segments of our community with a focus on reaching youth, seniors, people living with HIV/AIDS and those experiencing mental health challenges as a result of coming out or completing life transitions. We believe that building a stronger sense of community connection promotes both solidarity and health within the entire LGBTQ+ population. By working towards greater acceptance of all LGBTQ+ people we also help to reduce the socioeconomic, physical and mental health disparities that are associated with rejection from family, schools, neighborhoods, and faith communities. The annual budget is $1.2 million of which $850,000 is provided through city and county contracts. In addition, there is a respectable reserve fund. The agency maintains contracts with Contra Costa County Office of HIV/AIDS, Behavioral Health, CDBG (City of Walnut Creek and County), Concord-Pleasant Hill Health District, Office of Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD) and Zero Tolerance for Violence.
