Rainbow Room

By Simone Wichers-Voss & Carol Spicer
 
Imagine being a young child, either neglected or abused to the extent CPS feels that it is necessary to take you out of the one place you know as home. You and your siblings are picked up by strangers and bundled away immediately. You can’t take your “blankie,” your favorite T-shirt, or your school supplies – CPS is there to provide for these children. Bosque County Child Protective Services has been working hard at providing a Rainbow Room resource center to help the children who are neglected or abused to the extent that CPS deems it necessary to remove them from their homes.
