Frequently Asked Questions
We don’t have the facilities or the personnel to work with really young children. (Think diapers and pants wetting). Ages six to nine are a good fit for our playroom and our team. Once the girls reach age nine, their interests change dramatically. To match their interests, we would need a whole new environment, more staff and volunteers and an enormous budget. None of those things seem to be lurking on the horizon at the moment.
One thing we do is to steer our girls over to The Roc and 4H. They have some excellent activities for girls in grades five to eight.
The doors of other children’s programs are open to all comers. The girls of Reaching for Rainbows, on the other hand, are recommended to us. Participation is dependent on their vulnerability.
Reaching for Rainbows is also very little about the actual activities we offer and very much about changing the world for our girls. By providing a regular, consistent agenda, we dig deep into the roots of vulnerability. With the generosity of this community on our side and the diligence of our team on the floor, we are achieving incredible success.
