What Rainbows' is about
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 school.


Why 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, substance & alcohol abuse


Rainbows Helps Children

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


If you have any queries or would like to sign your child up for the Rainbows intervention please contact one of our Learning Mentors.
