Our mission at Ruby’s Rainbow is to grant scholarships to adults with Down syndrome who are seeking post-secondary education, enrichment or vocational classes. It is our goal to create awareness of the capabilities of these amazing individuals and help them achieve their dreams of higher education.
We not only grant scholarships; we also love keeping track of Ruby’s Rockin’ Recipients throughout their educational programs and beyond. We hope reading about them will inspire others to go for their dreams!
Ruby’s Rainbow was inspired by our own lil’ lady, Ruby. At her birth, we discovered she had an extra special chromosome. Our expectations for her did not change, and we vowed as a family to give her all the opportunities we could to learn, grow, flourish and become an important contributor to society and to the community.
Life and learning don’t stop after high school. At Ruby’s Rainbow, we want to help these amazing individuals with Down syndrome reach their highest potential.
