Rainbows United Inc. has hired two people in its human resources department.
Renee Walker is now on staff as the organization’s vice president of human resources. Desiree Allen also has been hired for the role of human resources coordinator.
Walker comes to Rainbows after more than 16 years as the vice president of human resources for ChildServ, a nonprofit child services organization in Illinois.
She replaces Betty Graham, who retired in March after more than 20 years with Rainbows.
Allen, meanwhile, fills a position that has been vacant since earlier this year. She spent the past two years as an educational consultant with Tabor College.
Rainbows serves children and young adults with special needs or are at risk. Last year, the organization provided services for more than 3,500 individuals.
