Dreaming Big: Rainbow Village

Sep 10, 2018


Rainbow Village, a nonprofit based in Duluth, GA, transforms the lives of homeless families with children by providing a stable community and services that instill initiative, self-development and accountability for future generations. Walking onto the campus of Rainbow Village, the first thing you notice are the beautiful new housing, childcare, educational, and recreational facilities that provide a safe haven for vulnerable parents and their children.

As a recipient of the 2018 Dream Big Award, Rainbow Village’s Executive Director, Melanie Connor, wanted to shift the organization’s focus from what you see to what you don’t see – the data behind the scenes. Through working with TechBridge’s Performance Measurement team, Rainbow Village now has a comprehensive data strategy defining the critical metrics Rainbow Village staff members need to lead resident families forward on the path to self-sufficiency.

TechBridge also defined the business processes to implement a custom Salesforce client management system to enable Rainbow Village to report on these metrics in real time through the click of a button – resulting in annual savings valued at $18,900 per year through reducing staff member time required to manually enter, aggregate, and report on client metrics. As a result of TechBridge’s work, Rainbow Village has received additional grant funding from the Episcopal Charities Foundation to implement the new Salesforce solution with TechBridge in the coming year.
