Rainbows 2017

22 September 2017

Moncton, N.B., September 22, 2017— YWCA Moncton has announced it will be offering Rainbows programming beginning September 2017.

Rainbows is a hope-based support program that fosters emotional healing for anyone experiencing a loss due to a life-altering event, such as the death of a loved one, divorce, seperation, and/or changing family dynamics. 

All Rainbows programs are guided by trained volunteer facilitators and provided at no cost to families. Rainbows meets consecutively for twelve weeks: each meeting being one hour in length. Participants complete a personal journal with exercises and activities that allow time for reflection and discussion.

Based on demand, the various levels of Rainbows are scheduled to run every Tuesday from 6pm - 7pm, beginning September 26th to December 12th at the YW Jean E.S. Irving Centre for Women & Children at 135 Kendra Street. 

Rainbow Groups:
  • Sunbeams: Pre-school
  • Rainbows: Elementary
  • Spectrum: High-School
  • Kaleidoscope: Adult
  • Prism: Single-parent
Participant testimonials from past offerings of Rainbows speak to the programs positive impact:

“Rainbows has been very beneficial for both my daughter and I. It has been great to share and learn from one another’s experiences. Life is not easy and we all have challenges to overcome” states a past participants testimonial. “It’s a good way to learn. Sharing and listening helps a lot. It is wonderful that this program is available for kids so they can learn about their emotions.”

Since 1983, Rainbows has served more than 2.5 million children and teens. 

YWCA Moncton exists to support and empower women - and their families - through advocacy and integrated services that foster independence, wellness, and equity for all. YWCA Moncton believes in the boundless potential of all women.
