Abby Mosher
Founder/Executive Director

Abby Mosher is the Founder and Executive Director of Tomorrow’s Rainbow, Inc.  She is a pioneer in combining the therapeutic benefits of horses with facilitated peer support groups to provide a highly effective, comprehensive and innovative approach to children’s grief support. 

Ms. Mosher studied at the world renowned Dougy Center in Portland, Oregon and is certified in Equine Assisted Psychotherapy as an Equine Specialist from the Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association.  She has trained with the National Organization for Victim’s Assistance and holds a certificate from the Florida Crisis Response Team.  Ms. Mosher has dedicated her adult years to child advocacy receiving the School Board of Broward County’s Crystal Apple Community Award in 2000.  In 2008 she was honored with the Silver Medallion Award from One Community, a humanitarian award which recognized her work in promoting a diverse, inclusive community.  Most recently, Ms. Mosher was honored by Bank of America through their Neighborhood Excellence Initiative where she received the 2009 Local Hero Award and was recognized as one of the Top 100 Women in Broward County in 2010, 2011 and 2012.  In 2010, under her leadership, Volunteer Broward selected Tomorrow's Rainbow as the Agency of the Year.

Ms. Mosher founded Tomorrow’s Rainbow after her own personal tragedy identified the lack of grief support available for children and their families that had experienced the death of a loved one.  With her trademark drive, determination, and dedication to all children, she created Tomorrow’s Rainbow which has become an oasis for bereaved children in our community.

Ms. Mosher currently resides with her 20 year old son, Dustin, and her fiancée, Shel Cohen, at the Tomorrow’s Rainbow Ranch in Coconut Creek, Florida.  Together with a herd of miniature horses, ponies, donkeys, goats, sheep, and a pig, they honor her late husband, Paul Mosher’s memory, while guiding the forgotten mourners, bereaved children, back to joy.
