RAINBOWS Program Begins January 26


Program will be held virtually (via Zoom). RAINBOWS is a free program for children and adolescents (K-12) who are dealing with major family changes such as divorce or death. Groups will meet every other Tuesday evening (Jan 26 – June 1). RAINBOWS helps participants understand and express their feelings, build a stronger sense of self-esteem, and direct their energy toward a healthy acceptance of the changes that have taken place. For more information (including exact dates), click here. To register or to learn more email Laura Smith, Rainbows Coordinator.

OFS Virtual Fall Event

Held on November 11. If you missed it, click here to enjoy.


Barbara Rinella entertained us with The Splendid and the Vile by Erik Larson. We missed being together, but your health and safety are of our utmost concern. The event was free, and you can view the video for free but donations are appreciated. For a full list of Barbara’s book recommendations, click here. Or view the short list she mentioned at the end of her presentation here.

Because of the pandemic, the demand for our services has increased while at the same time forcing us to cancel our in-person fundraising events. In lieu of being able to attend our Fall Luncheon, we hope you will consider making a donation to OFS.
