Rainbow Days mission is to help children and youth in adversity build coping skills and resilience to create positive futures. Rainbow Days works with children and youth who are experiencing adversity, including those who: are living in poverty, homeless, have been witness to or a victim of family violence, have a substance using parent and other challenges. Using evidence-based programs and trained staff mentors, Rainbow Days teaches children decision-making skills, coping skills and how to make healthy choices, including resisting negative peer pressure, staying in school and staying drug-free. Through Rainbow Days’ Curriculum-Based Support Groups (CBSGs®), provided weekly to children at schools and shelters, Classroom Presentations, unique themed Summer Day Camps, Mentored Experiences, Family Outings and other services designed to meet children’s emotional, social, educational and tangible needs, Rainbow Days makes a lasting and positive impact in the lives of over 9,000 at-risk children and youth in the Dallas area annually. Additionally, through our robust training services, we are expanding Rainbow Days impact nationwide by training other youth-serving professionals in our curricula so that they can make an impact in the lives of children in their own communities.
