Welcome to Rainbows Nanaimo! We invite you to explore this site to learn more about this successful program. Rainbows is about providing support to families going through a major loss in their family. This program has been in Nanaimo for 26 years and has provided much needed support to children, teens and their parents as they grieve and deal with changes in their family life. Rainbows offers a curriculum to the trained volunteers as they facilitate small groups. As they work through the 12 topics together kids learn that they are not alone and are not to blame for their families’ change. Kids and parents feel listened and cared for as they learn about feelings and coping skills. The kids love the activities, journals games and snacks! WHO IS RAINBOWS FOR? WHAT IS GRIEF?
