MISSION

In Appreciation

The CPMC organization was formed in 1997.   The Rainbow Room was set up and stocked in early 1998 in the CPS offices in Conroe, TX in a 12' x 15' vacant office.  Laura Bush, who was the First Lady of Texas at that time, was the featured guest at the grand opening on February 12, 1998. Mrs. Bush was also instrumental in starting the first Community Partners organization in Dallas.
