About The Rainbow Project
Our vision is to create a safe, healthy and nurturing world for children & families.
At The Rainbow Project, we provide restorative healing and hope for young children and their families who have experienced trauma, helping them build a foundation for the mastery of life-sustaining skills.
Why is our approach so effective?
We desire to inspire, support and foster other--consumers, families, colleagues, team members and the community. We support individual differences such as life experience, culture, background and ability. We are committed to quality, integrity, leadership, professionalism and thoughtfulness.
