Congratulations, to our Marinette Legal Advocate, for completing the Advanced Training in Strangulation Prevention! Joette Koronkiewicz attended this five-day curriculum through the Institute on Strangulation Prevention, a nationally aclaimed program based in San Diego, California. Almost half the victims in our community questioned by Law Enforcement indicate that their abusers have strangled or “choked” them. Our community is working to address the needs of survivors. What we can predict, we can prevent. Strangulation is a felony, as it can be lethal.
We just received a donation from the “Other Guys Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club” They are a great group with a great mission. They supplied the Rainbow House with chairs, ottomans, tables and bookshelves for our clients. Items were donated in Green Bay and delivered to our agency. Thank you, Other Guys, for your support!

Rainbow House would like to thank Aurora Medical Center – Bay Area for their generous year-end contribution of $1,000 for our joint efforts to make our community a safer, healthier place to live.
Colin McMahon, in pursuit of his Eagle Scout Project with Peshtigo Boy Scout Troop #1902, made 4 wooden bunk-beds for local survivors of domestic violence and their children who are transitioning into independent living arrangements. Each bunk-bed came complete with new pillows, sheet sets, and blanket. What an amazing community contribution to Rainbow House!
Rainbow House Domestic Abuse Services received a $1,000 grant from the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation.
Rainbow House will use this grant to support survivors and their children experiencing domestic violence. Domestic Violence has significantly increased, both in frequency and severity during the pandemic. At Rainbow House, we believe no one deserves to be abused be it emotionally, physically, financially, or sexually. Our prime service is the safety and empowerment of all victims and their children. We will provide prevention, education, and information to communities, families, and schools.
“We are so grateful for the support of the Greater Green Bay Foundation”, said Executive Director, Courtney Olson. “It takes a community to stand up against family violence”.
