Rainbow Rooms are an absolute blessing for those in need. CPS workers are paid so poorly in relation to their work that providing needs out of their own pockets had become a ridiculous issue. The birth of rooms to supply needs is a wonderful answer.
The second benefit is that it involves many community members that would perhaps never be aware of the needs or of their ability to help.
I started as a volunteer for Community Partners/Rainbow Room in the fall of 2010 as my Junior League placement. I was so touched by what Community Partners does for neglected and abused children that when a part-time position became open I applied for it. I am so proud to now be working with Community Partners and Child Protective Services in my county. We forget what we need on a daily basis to function and these children deserve everything that other children receive. They are innocent victims and Community Partners is able to provide them with hope and security for the future.
