YWCA - Safety Siren

Rainbows Program Launch

Rainbows, an international organization, provides a bridge to emotional healing for children, adolescents, and adults confronting death, divorce or other painful family transition – “because it doesn’t need to hurt forever.”

Each year Rainbows provides training and curricula for 32,000 volunteers offering grief support services. Since Rainbows inception, nearly one million children and their families in 49 states and 17 countries have benefited. Youth and their families receive these service in churches, synagogues, schools and social service agencies regardless of age or religious affiliation.

What makes Rainbows unique among other support groups that address grief issues in children, adolescents and adults?

  • International outreach, providing grief support services and curricula for two decades.
  • Cost-effective, volunteer-driven delivery with no annual fee to providers and no cost to youth participants.
  • Endorsed by educational and religious organizations, as well as many of the “helping” professions.
  • Rainbows backs all of its volunteers with liability insurance covering training and curricula delivery.
  • Quality control through site management and curriculum evaluation.
  • Service includes extensive training, a toll free phone number and local site support.
  • Curriculum tailored to age and loss circumstances.

YWCA Moncton will be offering the Rainbows program at Beaverbrook Middle School starting this January. Stay tuned for more information!
