Prevention

Through the Rainbow Room we support the Family Based Safety Services  (FBSS) unit of Texas Child Protective Services (CPS).  The caseworkers in this unit are working with families to head off child abuse/neglect before it happens.  These caseworkers utilize the Rainbow Room to provide needed items to these families.  Child safety items have proven to be a great help for these families ... Pack-N-Plays and air mattress sets to discourage co-sleeping, car seats, safety gates, child safety kits, etc.

Use of Rainbow Room stock items by the FBSS caseworkers is instrumental in keeping families together through traumatic times and can be equally critical in developing a helping relationship between caseworkers and client families.
