Commemorating 50 Years of Empowering Children & Families

Rainbows: 50 years of empowering children and families documents the history of the agency from the very beginning. Linda Weir Enegren shares her memories alongside many board members, staff, families and volunteers. It’s a book you will want to read cover to cover.

“If there is no beginning, there can be no hope. This book is for all Rainbows children and families – past, present, and future.”
– Linda Weir Enegren, Founder 1972

“Since 1972, more than 62,000 children and their families have participated in Rainbows’ services. Each family has valuable stories to share, as do the staff and community members who supported them and continue to cheer them on. The history assembled here, like that of Rainbows itself, owes its existence to staff, children, families, volunteers, and supporters who number in the hundreds of thousands. Know that the many voices included in this book see themselves as a part of Rainbows’ larger history and consider that fact a great gift. May this book inspire the sharing of even more voices and stories.”
– Jim Walters, Board Chair 2021 – 2022

“Linda’s efforts and Rainbows’ mission live on because the organization and its supporters remain doggedly passionate about and committed to every child. Each page of this book showcases such dedication, and I am so thankful to be part of Rainbows’ history.”
– Deb Voth, President March 2010 – June 2022
