Cheryl Deluca-Johnson Joins Rainbow Village as Special Projects Coordinator

Seasoned Nonprofit Professional Brings Wealth of Experience and Fresh Perspective to Georgia Organization Dedicated to Ending Homelessness – One Family at a Time
By: Rainbow Village
DULUTH, Ga. - March 7, 2023 - PRLog -- Rainbow Village announced today the addition of Cheryl Deluca-Johnson, LPC, to its team as Special Projects Coordinator. Her impressive resume includes turns as CEO of Street Grace, Women's Program Supervisor at MARR Addiction Treatment Center, and Consultant with World Hope International. She has also served on the board of the Community Foundation for Northeast GA and the strategic planning committee for Annandale Village. Bringing Deluca-Johnson to the team committed to ending homelessness – one family at a time – is the latest strategic move to expand the nonprofit's scope beyond its 2.5-acre campus in Duluth with an outreach model geared toward homelessness prevention.

"Having Cheryl on our team is a godsend," said Rainbow Village CEO, Melanie Conner. "I knew from the moment that I met her that I had to have her here. Randy introduced us and didn't get another word in during our conversation. God took over from there. She has already made an impact on the organization, and she will be a tremendous help to me and the entire staff as we plan our Next Big Thing."

Having served what she deems "the underserved and misunderstood" for the last 20+ years, Deluca-Johnson knows that the focus of each of the nonprofits for which she's worked is entirely different from the image that the public holds and the media portrays. They are victims of trafficking, people contending with addiction, and people experiencing homelessness. Their situation is just one element of who they are, and she endeavors to see the whole person. Her focus is on changing perceptions.

In her new role as Special Projects Coordinator, Deluca-Johnson will compile data and work toward enhancing existing programs like Rainbow Village's mentoring program and involving the alums as much as possible. She is perhaps most excited about the nonprofit's homelessness prevention capabilities, believing it's far easier to bolster at-risk families before they become homeless than it is to help them after the fact. Once that program is off the ground and as successful as they hope it will be, Deluca-Johnson also wants to help get the Rainbow Village story out there so other organizations can adopt their model, believing that's the key to actually ending homelessness.
