About Us


Our Mission

To create a community that connects children with the support they need to navigate grief and heal from loss.


Rainbows for All Children began as a grassroots mission founded by Suzy Yehl Marta. Following her divorce, Suzy tried to locate a support group for her three boys, but none existed. With support from other parents, she started working on a curriculum, the foundation of Rainbows for All Children, for children who experienced loss.

Celebrating Rainbows Successes

“Rainbows is about new friendships and about sharing with others who have gone through or had similar losses. No one talks about you, but is nice and understanding.”

Jr. High Participant

“Thank you for Rainbows—it helped me feel better about not having a father by showing me that everyone does not have a big family, but at least I have one.”
