THANK YOU 
Premier Bank of Palos Verdes

In June, Rainbow Services celebrated 34 years of providing help & hope to survivors in the South Bay.  The Birthday Celebration was sponsored and hosted by Premier Bank of Palos Verdes. We are truly grateful for their support and want to express our appreciation to Julia Parton for her amazing party planning skills, and John Polen (pictured with Board Member, Dana Brooks, and Executive Director, Elizabeth Eastlund) for all you do to support Rainbow and our community.  Additionally, we are grateful for LA City Councilmember Joe Buscaino's generosity in providing event sponsorship.  A huge thank you to our Arc En Ciel volunteers, for all of your efforts that made the evening a success.  Finally, to our supporters, thank you for your generosity in support of Rainbow's work to end the cycle of violence.  There is always time to honor Rainbow's work by clicking Donate Now or the link above.  


Half of Female Homicide Victims Killed by Intimate Partner

A new CDC Report  highlights the sobering statistic that most women who are victims of homicide, are killed by their intimate partners. Rainbow is committed to providing information, support and resources to those who are seeking help.    In a society that often places blame on the victim - "why doesn't she just leave?" - we understand that it takes courage to ask for help, to actually leave an abusive relationship, and that leaving is often one of the most dangerous times for victims. Changing this tragic statistic requires a bold culture change that builds healthy connections-because that is the foundation for strong and healthy communities.  To learn more about the recent report, click  here.
