Founded by Elaine Helms, RAIN (Reaching Adults In Need) was created to provide transitional housing solutions to LGBT individuals experiencing crisis leading to homelessness.

Our mission is to help individuals by providing emergency shelter service to address the emergent need of LGBT individuals experiencing crisis leading to homelessness. Through integrated solutions we offer educational & financial responsibility resources as well as wrap around services in substance abuse and mental health counseling and drug testing. We are dedicated to bringing opportunities to troubled individuals in Greater Newark and surrounding communities.
