In 1983, three Chicago-area private schools piloted the Rainbows curriculum. Over the next 30 years, this grass roots program expanded throughout the United States and into 11 countries, serving over three million youth.
For three decades, Rainbows has sustained children and families in their tragedy through peer-support group programs and services. These programs are strategically designed to address the social and emotional well-being of youth and
their family after a life-altering loss or traumatic event such as divorcing parents or the death or absence of a loved one.
We partner with schools, faith communities, and other agencies to implement adult-led, peer support groups. We offer interactive, online training for group facilitators and provide age-appropriate curriculum for youth participants. We help children develop problem-solving and coping skills, learn anger management, alleviate depression and anxiety, and reduce emotional pain and suffering.
