Rainbows believes that grieving youth deserve supporting, is available to participants of all races and religions and serves as an advocate for youth who face life-altering crises.

When a change takes place in the family, whether by death, divorce, separation or abandonment, it has a profound effect on all members in a family.  Grieving is a natural process which evolves from an emotional loss.  A peer support group can help children and parents through this process.  They learn that they are not alone, by meeting new friends who are going through similar circumstances. This often helps participants deal with their feelings in a healthy way and move towards acceptance of what has happened.
