Supporters like the Mel Wolf Foundation:
"In its simplest and most fundamental form, the goal of the Mel Wolf Foundation is to support disadvantaged women and children. The Center epitomizes our mission as it strives to help people help themselves. It is not a “hand out” mentality but rather one of support, collaboration and collegiality.
Many of these youth (those served primarily through Rainbow Alley) have been disenfranchised by their families and can benefit greatly from a “surrogate” support system. These are wonderful individuals with a lot of potential for the future. Rainbow Alley is perpetually looking for new and better ways to make sure that this amazing human resource does not fall through the proverbial cracks.
Through programs that augment continuing education and leadership, the Center is striving to enhance this human asset and the community as a whole. The Trustees of the Mel Wolf Foundation believe that our namesake would be proud to know that he has contributed to an organization that is intent on improving opportunities for individuals while also enhancing the 'the common good'."
- Dr. Sue Giullian, Mel Wolf Foundation Trustee
