Rainbows is an international, non-profit organization that fosters emotional healing among children and teens who have experienced significant loss such as death of a loved one, separation or divorce of their parents, or myriads of other life altering changes.
Nearly 69% of children in the United States live in “non-traditional” families coping with some type of loss. 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 services in churches, synagogues, schools and social service agencies regardless of age or religious affiliation.
