Come join the Rainbow’s End Community Development Corporation Board of Directors and help us create meaningful employment opportunities for people with lived experience of mental illness.
The Colours Café is the newest social enterprise run by Rainbow’s End.
Thanks to the support from St. Joseph’s West 5th Campus we were able to open on a part-time basis on February 15, 2014.
At that time we only sold coffee and small convenience style food items. However, we were able to give 3 people meaningful and dignified employment. From their support and willingness to do more, Colours was able to grow from being open only on the weekends to open through the week in the evenings. We were able to increase our staff to four people
On March 17, 2014 we started start full-time operations.
We were able, with the help of our Shift Supervisors and Cafe Attendants, to open full time. It was at this point that Maribeth - the Cafe Manager - came on to the team to help construct a menu, and run the operations of the Cafe.

Thanks to support from the Ontario Trillium Foundation for the generous grant that was received April 2, 2014, we are able to continue to grow this small social enterprise.
We would like to give the Ontario Trillium Foundation our most sincere thanks for their present and future support of Colours Cafe and Rainbow's End as an organization.
