Rainbow Homes Model was approved by Sarva Siksha Abhiyan of Central Government and subsequently many a states approved and adopted the model. The states which adopted the Rainbow Homes model until now includes, Bengal, Delhi, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Bihar and Maharastra. The states have supported ARUN under different schemes like ‘Residential Special Training Centre’ (RSTCs), Residential Bridge Courses (RBC), Urban Deprived Children Residential Hostels (UDC RH) etc.
The respective state/district SSA departments collaborated with the Rainbow Homes and School Buildings and other infrastructure in the schools premises were provided. Rainbow Homes Program, is running these schools directly and some with the help of local partner NGOs.

ARUN apart from working directly, also possess a strong network of 26 partner NGOs at the grassroots levels in all the 8 states it operates. The network of NGOs exactly replicates the caring campaign possible in all the Homes. NGOs working through this ‘Franchise care Model’ are committed for the long term care and to stand up for these children without adult protection.
The partner NGOs adhere to the child centred approach. The democratic and accountable functioning are the key partnership principles between NGOs and Rainbow Homes Program in running the homes.
