About This Side of the Rainbow
This Side of the Rainbow organization was created with the goal of establishing a theraputic summer program serving the LGBTQ+ teen youth community in the Houston area. The goal of creating a safe place for LGBTQ+ teens to enjoy a week together in the summer, while being guided in various activities by certified counselors, has experienced success since the organizations inception. With the success of summer camps since 2015, This Side of the Rainbow has grown to now include a one-day Winter camp, end-of-camp meeting for parents of our campers with one of our counselors, and when possible once a month gatherings.
Wanting to help and educate others in the Houston area has brought about additional offerings by This Side of the Rainbow - Educational Programs. These programs have been created to inform and educate those individuals or groups working with LGBTQ+ youth community. These may include mental health professionals, schools - public and private, churches, corporations and other community organizations. We believe these programs help make strides towards our desire to help improve LGBTQ+ youth's life experiences and positive growth during such an important stage of life. Please contact This Side of the Rainbow so we may get to know you and/or your organization's needs and stylize one of our programs towards your goal.
