What is Rainbow Room?
The Rainbow Room is a resource room stocked with snacks, diapers, school supplies, clothes, toiletries, toys and other items frequently needed to meet the emergency needs of families in crisis. Our philosophy is that abused and neglected children and adults do not deserve used items, so only new items are stocked. Getting new items can have a significant impact on the children in helping them feel cared for and fit in with their peers at school.
The Room is available to caseworkers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for any of our clients.
Prior to the establishment of the Fort Bend Rainbow Room, local caseworkers frequently used their own funds to meet these needs, while waiting for permanent funding solutions. Many of these expenditures were not reimbursable; nevertheless, most caseworkers could not refuse to feed or clothe hungry children that had just been rescued from abusive and/or neglectful homes. The Rainbow Room is able to meet these immediate needs with support from the community.
