Audiovisual and Digital media, 1995 - 2010


Scope and Contents

From the Collection:

Materials created and collected by RAIN staff between 1992 and 2013 that reflect the growth and development of the organization in their work to alleviate the suffering of HIV/AIDS patients by organizing congregational-based care teams for AIDS sufferers, providing programs to promote awareness and prevention of HIV/AIDS, and coordinating public events to support the program.

These records mainly consist of ephemeral printed materials and memorabilia associated with the activities of the RAIN organization, including newsletters, clippings, flyers, event posters, fabric items and other memorabilia. Notably there is a good representative collection of RAIN’s newsletter, Raindrops, from 1997-2008. The collection also includes electronic media documenting religious services, training, and media coverage of RAIN and AIDS events between 1995 and 2010.

In addition, the collection has a small but significant group of reports evaluating RAIN that were created by third parties. A very small amount of correspondence is scattered among other printed materials throughout the collection, and there are a few financial records.
