Rainbows

Bridges is pleased to offer the Rainbows children’s grief support program:

• An evidence-based, age-adjusted curriculum
• Developed by the Rainbows organization, the largest international nonprofit group dedicated to helping children and teens grieve and grow after the death of a loved one
• Rainbows organization has served 2.7 million youth since its inception in 1983
• Outcomes document success helping vulnerable children at a painful time in their lives
• Facilitated in small groups by trained, experienced leaders
• Interactive sessions in an 6 week series with games, other activities, and discussion
• Affirms that feelings of loss and grief are normal and decreases feelings of isolation
• Focuses on building confidence and self-esteem, improving communication with families and peers, and prevention of destructive behaviors such as gang involvement and substance abuse
• Goal of improved school attendance and academic performance

Bridges is seeking organizations that regularly work with children
to host Rainbows groups. The program works well in schools,
after-school programs, faith communities, etc.

Rainbows is part of Bridges’ specialized grief support programming
for children, which also includes the 25 year old Shannon’s Hope camp.
