Executive Director

Melinda Rollins-Frausto

Melinda has served as the executive director for Rainbow Children’s Home since March of 2000.

“From the first day I learned of Rainbow Children’s Home, I felt God guiding me to work with the abused and neglected children. Often times, abuse is a multi-generational issue. We want to stop the cycle of abuse by healing their wounds through counseling, preparing them for the future through education and training, and connecting them with a great sense of hope through spiritual guidance. It is an honor to serve our children because I know that we can make a difference in their lives.”
