Whataburger has collaborated with Rainbow Housing Assistance Corporation to form a community partnership at La Palmilla apartments, a 267-unit community in Phoenix.

Whataburger is committed to supplying Phoenix youth with backpacks, scholarship information, job opportunities, and prizes for participants. College Bound, is Whataburger and Rainbow’s most recent event dedicated to helping youth with college admissions and financial aid questions.

The last College Bound event was held on September 16, 2019. Participants received insight on financial assistance, based on family income, to help them understand payment options for college. U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps recruiters were also in attendance to answer questions.

Throughout the year, participants are provided with youth enrichment programs, including educational activities, informational resources, and homework help to promote academic achievement and employment opportunities.

Rainbow Housing Assistance Corporation is a nonprofit organization that provides service-enriched housing programs for residents of affordable housing and diverse economic backgrounds throughout the country.

Rainbow is currently providing services to more than 85 affordable housing developments across the country, and is headquartered in Phoenix.

Rainbow also has a number of developments in Arizona, all of which began construction in 2016.

Whataburger will continue to support Rainbow in their mission to help property owners improve occupancy, reduce turn over costs, and enrich the quality of life for the renter. Flynann Janisse, executive director of Rainbow and Dawn Cole, Whataburger’s community experience supervisor, lead this partnership to educate and serve youth.
