Chasing the Rainbow

About this Auction

Chasing the Rainbow Inspired by sandbox games where through imagination we create our own worlds and experiences, this playhouse relies on a simple repetitive construction that integrates whimsy and structure into one. The altered sequencing of colorfully stained lumber creates a dynamic form encouraging child-like wonder and an embracing interior space suitable for all children’s activities. Curvilinear layers stack with varied spaces to draw breezes through as it ascends towards the sun culminating in a skylight facilitating natural light throughout the day. This house comes with cushion seats and pillows to make the interior cozy, along with some favorite children's stories. Playhouse designed by HKS and built by McCarthy Building Company. Auction winners can choose to purchase the playhouse for themselves or gift the house to one of our nonprofit partners. This year’s nonprofit recipients are Make-A-Wish® Georgia, LiveSafe Resources, Sheltering Arms and Calvary Children’s Home.

The Center for Family Resources
In Support of The Center for Family Resources
We are a Cobb County-based organization that works exclusively to serve local families and individuals that are either homeless or in danger of becoming homeless. We provide tailored, long term supportive services to our clients. We aim to ensure that once they leave our program, they will have all the necessary skills, tools, and resources to be self sufficient enough to never again need us, or any organization like us.
Parade of Playhouses 2021
The Center for Family Resources presents the First Annual Parade of Playhouses! This special showcase brings together design and construction teams to create unique children’s playhouses that will be showcased to help raise awareness for the children and families that we serve. The 2021 Parade of Playhouses event replaces our annual gala and raises critical funds to support our mission-based work of preventing childhood homelessness and supporting families on the path to stability and success. 
The Center for Family Resource has been serving the community for more than 60 years. Our programs are designed to provide comprehensive services that identify and address the root causes that lead to housing insecurity and to help families work towards long-term stability. Thank you for partnering with us to have a positive impact on the children and families in Cobb County.
