Our Work

Support Services. The Foundation will support SOGIE individuals in Canada to improve their socio-economic conditions by providing directly, or through community groups:

  1. Settlement supports, including sponsor circles,
  2. Language training or support, employment and other training services such as career planning, job search assistance and skills training, plus
  3. Supportive integration services for adults, youth and children. This includes on-to-one support, mentor matching, peer support, and support groups.

Currently, we only offer support services in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Education. We are dedicated to increasing educating the public about all sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions (SOGIE) in the community through educational, cultural, and human rights classes, seminars and workshops.

Research. The Foundation will research and evaluate services to SOGIE people. It will strive to determine which services produce improved socio-economic conditions for SOGIE people, and which do not. It will share this information in an effort to educate the public about which mental health and educational interventions have the most beneficial results.

About activism and advocacy. We do not do advocacy work or involve ourselves in activism. If you must protest about any issue, propose changes to any law, wish to change organizations or their structure, support specific political candidates or parties, etc., then of course you have the right to do these all these activities, but the End of the Rainbow Foundation cannot be involved.

About applying for grants. We do not accept applications for grants or funding and instead provide direct services or support volunteers to provide commnunity support.
