COVID-19 Impact

Due to the unprecedented health crises the United States is undergoing and in compliance with the directive Governor Tom Wolf announced today, the Rainbow Rose Center office will be closed for the next two weeks (March 17 – 31, 2020). We will abide by the guidelines set forth by the Governor, the Pennsylvania Department of Health, the CDC, and WHO in conjunction with the I.D.E.A.S. Center as to when we will reopen for our regular office hours and programs.

We will continue to serve the needs of our community online as we are able. We welcome you to connect with us via email ( and/or Facebook message.

Thank you for your understanding. We will get through this together and we look forward to seeing you soon. Stay safe and stay healthy.
