YMCA of Greater Saint John receives $20,000 grant for Rainbows Program from the Bell Let’s Talk Community Fund
Saint John, NB — The YMCA of Greater Saint John is pleased to receive a $20,000 grant from the Bell Let’s Talk Community Fund to support the Rainbows program.
The Rainbows Program fosters emotional healing among children and youth experiencing a loss from a life-altering crisis. The curriculum is designed to assist individuals grieving a death, divorce or any other painful transition in a safe and supportive environment, where they can process their feelings through a unique peer support program. The Rainbows volunteers facilitate these programs at accredited sites from Sussex to St. Stephen.
The grant received will provide course materials for 170 participants, and will support training 12 new Rainbows facilitators.
“The Bell Let’s Talk Community Fund grant will support 170 children this school year, through programs where everyone feels safe and supported,” said
