Every night many children in Montgomery County go to bed in foster homes or emergency shelters.  They have been removed from their homes because they have been neglected or abused-- physically, emotionally and sadly, too often, sexually.  Many times when Child Portective Services (CPS) caseworkers enter a home, they find families living in deplorable conditions:  children sleeping on the floor or sharing a mattress if they are lucky, little food, few clothes, dirt and trash everywhere.

When they are removed it is usually an emergency and there is not advanced notice and it can be done at any hour of the day or night.  Most often there is not time to collect the meager belongings the child has.  The child or children are brought to Child Protective Services by the caseworkers, and in many cases the child has no clothes, is filthy and hungry.  Community Partners of Montgomery County is designed to meet these important needs.

Community Partners of Montgomery County has the following programs helping children:

The Rainbow Room

The Rainbow Room is an emergency resource center that distributes new items, such as clothing, diapers, formula, hygiene products, lice treatment, cleaning supplies and food, as well as toys and books to clients of CPS caseworkers free of any overhead or administrative costs.

The most basic needs of a family in crisis are often unavailable, and caseworkers typically cannot provide the necessities from their personal resources.  With the introduction of the Rainbow Room, assistance with basic needs becomes available.  This is instrumental in keeping families together through traumatic times and can be equally critical in developing a helping relationship between workers and client families.
