diversity at raincity housing

People who access our services come from a wide variety of backgrounds, orientations and ethnicities. The places where folks ultimately call home, the interactions we have with others in the community, and the work environments for our employees, all need to reflect this. Read more.

images on our website

All images of people on this website are either purchased stock images, staff members, or people attending public events. There are no images of clientele or tenants of our buildings.

The decision to not use images of our clients is a conscious one – if we approached someone staying in one of our buildings and asked if we could use their picture, they may feel obligated to say yes. An image is a literal snapshot of someone at a particular place in their life. Once placed online, an image can be copied, manipulated, and/or saved elsewhere an endless number of times; therefore for the purposes of this website we choose not to use images of clientele.
