Rainbows

 

What We Do

Rainbows' programs help children who are grieving the loss of a parent or guardian due to death, divorce, deployment, or trauma. Rainbows' trained facilitators, using age-appropriate curriculum, establish peer support groups in schools, faith-based organizations, or community centers.

Who We Serve

Rainbows' programs are for all children from all economic, racial, ethnic, and religious backgrounds.

How We Do It

Children who experience the trauma and grief associated with losing a parent or guardian are at an increased risk for: learning, emotional and behavioral issues; physical health problems; aggression; and substance & alcohol abuse.

Rainbows Will Help Your Children

  • Develop and strengthen problem-solving skills and appropriate behavior
  • Improve school attendance and academic performance
  • Alleviate depression and anxiety
  • Reduce emotional pain and suffering
  • Improve communication in their families
  • Present destructive behavior such as involvement with gangs, alcohol and substance abuse

 

If your child is part of a single-parent family, has experience the death of a loved family member, friend, or sibling, or struggling through a painful experience, this will be an opportunity for him or her to share with a special someone on the outside what is happening on the inside.

*Please be sure to let us know if your child has been in a previous Rainbows Program group by indicating the facilitator's name on our registration form.
