What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We Believe... The experiences of childhood have a lifelong impact. It is a valuable and vulnerable time. When children experience trauma - whether abuse, dysfunction, or neglect - they carry the effects through youth into adulthood. The results are risky behaviors, emotional issues, and health problems that have broad-reach effects on children, families, and communities. This is WHY WE MUST STEP IN! Every child deserves a chance at a promising future. With the right interventions, we make that possible. Interrupting the negative effects that adversity creates helps these children grow, develop, and make decisions in healthy ways. Critical coping and social skills help them build the resilience to transcend even the most difficult circumstances. Better equipped, they can RISE ABOVE life's challenges to create promising futures.

Rainbow Days

Rainbow Days was founded in Dallas in 1982 to fill a gap in services for the children of adults with substance use disorders on the belief that support and education could empower children to heal and make healthy choices. Rainbow Days core program, the support group model, was created to teach coping and decision-making skills to children facing adversity and to offer them emotional support. This successful and effective model went on to become the nationally recognized Curriculum-Based Support Group (CBSG) Program, a unique, multicultural, evidence-based preventive intervention program. Today, Rainbow Days has expanded to offer an array of programs centered on substance use disorder prevention, social-emotional learning (SEL) and life enrichment, including summer camps, educational events and mentoring activities. The CBSG program was adapted to accommodate a breadth of childhood experiences such as poverty, homelessness, domestic violence or familial incarceration.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

When children experience adversity - whether abuse, dysfunction, homelessness or poverty - there are life-long effects for them, their families and the community.

Rainbow Days is a non-profit organization that breaks these cycles by creating supportive communities - through support groups, positive experiences and training for other youth service providers. Children learn and practice healthy self-management, relationship and decision-making skills with positive adult role models.

By being equipped with better coping abilities and resilience, they can rise above life's challenges to create promising futures.

Rainbow Days' nationally recognized, evidence-based social emotional program, The Curriclum-Based Support Group CBSG® brings children and trained facilitators together in small support groups to learn and experience healthy approaches to self-management, relationships and decision-making.

Our core strategies include:

COMMUNITY CONNECTION – Our School-Based program, works with over 9,000 students, ages 4-15, each year through partnerships with 60 different elementary, middle and high schools in Dallas ISD, Richardson ISD, Grand Prairie ISD and others, alternative schools, juvenile detention facilities as well as recreation centers during the summer. Rainbow Days’ trained program staff provides weekly Curriculum-Based Support Groups (CBSGs®), tobacco use prevention presentations, Red Ribbon Week assemblies, individual screening, referral and counseling services for indicated youth, leadership summer camp, backpacks and other supportive services for at-risk children and youth in the Dallas area each year. Through our research-based programs, children and youth learn life skills and receive emotional support to help them resist negative peer pressure, cope with problems, set positive goals for the future, make healthy choices and stay drug-free.

FAMILY CONNECTION – Our Shelter-Based program, works with over 1,000 Dallas-area children, ages 4-12, experiencing homelessness. Through partnerships with 28 local shelters, domestic violence centers, foster care placement centers, schools and other sites. Rainbow Days’ trained program staff provides weekly Curriculum-Based Support Groups (CBSGs®) at each shelter, themed summer day camps in the community, family outings, holiday celebrations, mentored activities, school supplies and other items to meet children’s social, emotional, academic and physical needs. Through our research-based programs, children and youth learn life skills, receive emotional support to help them resist negative peer pressure, cope with problems, set positive goals for the future, make healthy choices and stay drug-free.

The TRANS4M CENTER – Our Training Center expands Rainbow Days’ scope and impact beyond Dallas by training counselors, teachers, nonprofit staff and other youth-serving professionals each year throughout Texas and the U.S. We train over 2,500 adults each year in how to use the CBSG® Program with children and youth that they work with as well as provide professional development classes in variety of topics related to social-emotional learning, substance abuse prevention and leadership.
