Success Story: Kids On Track Rainbows and Prisms Program
On behalf of Kids On Track I would like to thank the REALTORS® Community Foundation for your generous donation of $4,000. It is because of partners like you that Kids On Track continues to the Rainbows program for children and parents in our community. We are happy to announce that this year's Rainbows and Prisms program was a great success.
The parents and children attending reported that they were supported and learned new ways of responding to the changes and challenges in their families. Here is what one parent had to say in their evaluation; "Everything was helpful, made me think about how I did things and I became a better parent". A six year old who participated in the program said "I learned it is ok if your parents are divorced, they both still love you". Parents reported improvement with their children in the following areas: communication, school achievement, peer relationships, attitude, cooperation, self-esteem, anger management and sibling relationships. These are the type of outcomes that will have far reaching effects on the future mental health of the participants.
Thanks to your donation we were able to provide Rainbows and Prisms classes for 27 children and 21 parents. All of the funds given were fully expensed on the program. I have enclosed a thank you card from of the participating parents.
Thank you for helping bring hope to these families.
Linda Roussel, Director
