In the Wake of Harvey:

Children in foster care in the greater Houston area are again finding themselves displaced as flood waters have wiped out around 50,000 homes and continue to devastate residences, businesses, and organizations. As evacuation efforts continue, the Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) remains responsible for children in residential and congregate care facilities, those in foster homes or with relative caregivers, and those who are still in the custody of their parents.

Help Create Resources & Safe Places for Hurricane Harvey Affected Children of Texas

Donations made to our organization specifically for those affected by Hurricane Harvey will be used to support Rainbow Rooms. Specifically, funds can and will be used to provide resources like clothing, school supplies, toiletries, and other necessities for these children and the families and centers taking care of them during this challenging time in their lives.

 

 

 

Rainbow Rooms are 24/7 resource centers usually located within local Child Protective Services (CPS) offices. In the Rainbow Room, CPS caseworkers can get supplies for children who are victims of abuse or neglect – clothing, school supplies, diapers, and much more.

As an individual, or as part of a corporation, church, or community group, you can get involved and support your local Rainbow Room.
