The mission of the Rainbow Room program is to assist Brazoria County Alliance for Children clients and the Department of Family & Protective Services (DFPS) caseworkers by providing for the emergency tangible needs of children receiving services.

The Rainbow Room program was established in 1999 to meet the needs of abused and neglected children receiving services from DFPS. This program is volunteer-based and relies on community citizens to help implement and carry out its mission.

The Rainbow Room meets these needs through the following program components:

Rainbow Room

The most basic needs of children or families in crisis are often unavailable and caseworkers from DFPS typically cannot provide the necessities from their personal resources.

The Brazoria County Alliance for Children Rainbow Rooms are emergency resource centers stocked and supported by community volunteers. These rooms are utilized by DFPS caseworkers to distribute items to meet the basic needs of children and families in crisis. The 3 Rainbow Rooms in Brazoria County are located in the DFPS offices in Angleton and Pearland, as well as one that is located at the Angleton BCAC office.

All items in the rooms are new and are donated by members or organizations in the community. Some of these items include:

Children’s Annual Picnic and Christmas Party

A summer picnic and Christmas party provide opportunities for children and foster families to experience a summer and holiday dream come true, while establishing and enjoying a typical family tradition. Games, refreshments and prizes are enjoyed by everyone!

Birthday Program

For too many children in Brazoria County, receiving a gift on their special day seems like a far-away dream. But thanks to sponsors and donors, the birthday gift program of the Rainbow Room provides birthday gifts for children receiving services at the center, children placed in foster care or in the care of The Department of Family & Protective Services. This program helps celebrate their special day and lets them know that there are individuals who care and are committed to supporting and strengthening the lives of children in our county.

Adoption Day

The Rainbow Room is happy to participate in annual Brazoria County Adoption Day. In the celebration of new families coming together to start a new chapter in their lives, the Rainbow Room provides a small gift to each child on this special day.

You can help by donating new items to our Rainbow Room. Please call or email Maria Zarate at 979-849-2500 or mzarate@cac-bc.org
