In 1990, LifeTies opened Rainbow House, the first group home in the nation for adolescents with HIV/AIDS and their children. At that time, young women and their children were in great need of housing and care due to an unprecedented increase of pregnant young girls infected with HIV/AIDS as a result of unprotected sex. Today all HIV/AIDS impacted residents at Rainbow House acquired the disease at birth. In 2009, Rainbow House expanded its services to include medically fragile young women with Lupus, diabetes and severe asthma. Now in 2013 in effort to service an even greater population of youth in New Jersey, Rainbow House expanded its services to also include: pregnant/parenting youth, and youth with emotional/behavioral challenges.
