We are pleased to share that Spectrum is receiving a two-year Children’s Initiatives grant from the Lyle S. Hallman Foundation to create programming for 2SLGBTQIA+ children aged 4-12!

With the Youth Under the Rainbow program, we will be partnering with Kitchener Public Library, Waterloo Public Library, Idea Exchange, Region of Waterloo Library, and Artshine to provide storytime and craft programing for 2SLGBTQIA+ children across Waterloo Region.

The grant of $152,493 over two years will allow us to hire a program coordinator to lead this work in the new year. You can view the posting here.

We are extremely grateful to the Lyle S. Hallman Foundation for their generous support!
