Rainbow Village ribbon-cutting from 1979. From left to right: Howard Sturgeon, Henry Keller, Robert Sunnen, Amy Clements, and Sam Landfather. The approximately 70 residents of Rainbow Village live in group homes and receive in-home care to enable them to live independently. The success of Rainbow Village led to the establishment of a respite care program and a community-based home. The St. Louis Arc continues to develop programs in the community so that people with developmental disabilities have a choice of where and how they want to live.
