Rainbows Groups –
“Giving children and teens the guidance to grieve and grow after loss”
Rainbows is the largest international children’s charity dedicated solely to helping youth successfully navigate the very difficult grief process. Every day, children are touched by emotional suffering caused by a death, divorce, deployment of a family member, incarceration of a loved one, or any of a multitude of significant event traumas including natural or manmade disasters. And, while a few children are resilient, we know that most do not bounce back without help.
Children need guidance and compassion to prevent a loss event from literally defining their lives through later destructive choices. In fact, research proves that unresolved grief leaves kids vulnerable to major at-risk behaviors.
Since our founding in 1983, over 2.5 million children and teens throughout 50 United States and 17 other countries have been helped and supported by Rainbows programs.
