Rainbows and Windows

Where Individuals, Families and Communities
collectively create a world where Everyone Belongs.

Building Soft Skills in Children and Adults

A soft skill is a personal attribute that supports situational awareness and enhances an individual’s ability to get a job done.

Workshops Topics and Socializing Experiences

Through various workshops and socializing experiences individuals will build soft skills, while increasing family connections and strengthening their communities.


Your support is both needed and appreciated. Donations to Rainbows and Windows go directly to supporting a youth’s participation in a program that enhances their communication skills which assists in their positive adjustment to the larger community.  Youth are provided with individualized support based on their personal needs. The services available to them are detailed under the Workshops Topics and Socializing Experiences.

Our Projects

Lifting The Spirits​

When a loved one was isolated in a nursing home during Covid, there was continuous feedback about the loneliness and social isolation. The residents were sad beyond belief. One newspaper was shared amongst many so that they could have something current to read. Residents were not allowed to visit with each other and all social activities ceased. People began to feel a sense of being imprisoned in their rooms.

As Halloween approached, Rainbows and Windows orchestrated an event to provide individual bags of healthy treats to “Lift the Spirits,” of the residents. They were donated in the name of my mother, Ms. Quay Hardeman. That event brought joy to all, and let the residents know they were not forgotten by the people outside of the walls of the Nursing Home.

Students Volunteer to Gain Community Service Hours

Over the spring break, students participated in gaining Community Service hours by volunteering for Rainbows and Windows. They developed and monitored various social media accounts for the nonprofit. They also worked to develop advertisement posters for a fund-raising event to collect gently used clothing. They enjoyed the company of their classmates and engaged in positive peer bonding during the course of that week.  It was an enjoyable and productive time for all involved.

Creative Activities in Music, Dance and Visual Arts

Studies suggest that activities in these creative areas can be very valuable in positively impacting issues such as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder and even some phobias. It is a great way to express your emotions without words, process complex feelings and find relief.

Students will have the opportunity to participate in workshops where their creativity can be fostered and developed. Music, Dance and Visual Arts will be coordinated by professionals and students will explore their interests, talents, and their personal journey through these expressive workshops.
