Rainbow Days gives children hope for a promising future by providing them with the skills and support they need to make healthy choices, stay drug free and believe they have a purpose. Through an array of direct services including Rainbow Days’ own CBSG® Program, Classroom Presentations, Summer Camps, Family Outings and other Supportive Services, over 11,000 children and youth living in high-risk situations in the Dallas area learn life-changing skills and have the caring support from positive adult mentors as they benefit from Rainbow Days’ programs each year. Through our Trans4m Center, we expand the scope of our programs across the United States by training youth-serving professionals in our CBSG® Program and providing workforce development opportunities to thousands of participants each year. Through our work, Rainbow Days has positively impacted over a million children over the last 32 years.

Wezmore surpassed it's Kickstarter goal and raised more than $29,000! Rainbow Days is proud to partner with Eddie Coker and his new venture, Wezmore. Wezmore is all about building up youth – their self-esteem, self-understanding and instilling in them a sense of acceptance and gratitude. Would you like to bring Wezmore to your school? Through Rainbow Days’ philanthropic partnership with Eddie Coker, donors have the opportunity to help bring Wezmore to students at schools who have little access to these kinds of monies as well as to provide scholarship money to the schools in Texas that do have these types of discretionary funds. Click here for more information about this opportunity or contact Eddie Coker.
