Reaching for Rainbows is sponsored by St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church. Curious. Creative. Courageous.
Who Are We?
At Reaching for Rainbows we’re all about adding colour to the lives of the little girls of Prince Edward County. The up to 30 girls, ages 6 to 9, who take part in our program each year are brought to our attention because they will benefit from a boost of self-confidence, a smidgeon of good decision-making and a pinch of problem solving. Our girls are recommended to us by Queen Elizabeth Public School, St. Gregory’s Catholic School and other community groups.
How Do We Do It?
We are a non-profit group. The program is free to the children who attend. We totally rely on donations and grants from individuals, the community, organizations and granting agencies. Except for a paid Director, two Assistant Directors and an Enhanced Support Worker, our team consists entirely of about 20 stalwart volunteers. We believe our program will have a huge impact on the future of Prince Edward County’s young women. We invite you to join us in making a difference.
How Do We Help?
Four afternoons a week, the girls race into the Reaching for Rainbows centre at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church to spend two-and-a-half wonderful hours in a structured play program that is tailored to their needs and interests, but, most importantly, provides them with a calm, safe place where they can de-stress. The girls just love it!
