Rainbows is an international not-for profit program that fosters emotional healing among children, youth and adults grieving a loss from a life-altering crisis and transition in their family. The curriculum is designed to assist people who are grieving a death, divorce or any other painful transition in their family within a safe, supportive environment with a unique peer assisted program.

Our trained volunteers facilitate these programs in numerous community sites throughout the Greater Saint John and surrounding area. 

Rainbows is also offered at many schools in Saint John and at schools from Sussex to St. Stephen. Contact us today to find out if Rainbows is offered at your child's school.
