A program to support children and teens affected by community crises
As we have moved further into the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become increasingly evident that our youth are struggling under the growing weight of depression, anxiety, and fear. With their routines uprooted, social distancing guidelines enforced, and no experience in such unprecedented circumstances, youth will face massive trauma following this pandemic. Likely, many do not have the skills to cope with the grief this pandemic has inflicted on them.

As adults, it is challenging to understand and adapt to our changing world. For youth, this burden is cumbersome. For young adults who are incredibly close to the pandemic, who have lost a loved one from Coronavirus, or have had a family member contract the virus, the toll will worsen. During these times, it is essential to surround our youth with care, educate them on what is going on, and guide their mass media consumption and provide a sense of purpose. Rainbows for All Children's mission is to guide youth through the storm clouds of grief. With the constant uncertainty and an awkward reopening of the country, it is clear that we are all grieving the predictable life left behind before Coronavirus. We want to help.  

What a Silver Linings support group can do for your child(ren):
  • Improve their school attendance, behavior, and academic performance
  • Help develop and strengthen their problem-solving, coping, and communication skills
  • Teach stress and anger management
  • Alleviate depression, anxiety, emotional pain, and suffering
  • Reduce the likelihood of destructive behavior
