Regional councils provide training and information on regional and statewide issues, especially issues impacting services to families and children.
Each regional council operates according to the region’s needs and wishes. In most instances, each county CWB sends one or two delegates as their representative to the regional council.
Each regional council elects two or three delegates to represent their region at the Texas Council of Child Welfare Board meetings.
A Rainbow Room is an emergency resource center available to CPS caseworkers to help them meet the critical needs of abused and neglected children. It consists of a store-like setting that allows Child Protective Services workers to go “shopping” for the children and families on their caseloads. The room is stocked with new items such as clothing, shoes, toys and games, diapers, formula, school supplies, hygiene products and cleaning products. Every item in the Rainbow Room is donated or purchased from donations.
