RAINBOWS is a support group program for children who have suffered a significant loss in their lives, either by death, divorce or any other painful transition. There are separate programs for toddlers (SUNBEAMS), elementary school aged children (RAINBOWS), teen participants (SPECTRUM) and parents (PRISM). RAINBOWS is staffed by volunteers and not all groups can be offered.

The purpose of the RAINBOWS program is to provide children with an opportunity to meet new friends who have shared similar experiences; to have trained caring adults be present for the children while they sort through and understand their grief, and to help the children come to a healthy acceptance of what has happened to their family.
