For those not familiar with the Rainbow Room, it is where Children’s Protective Services and Adult Protective Services caseworkers go for new clothing, toys and other necessary items they can distribute to families in crisis.
Often these supplies are needed as caseworkers are removing children from abusive situations, and because of the Rainbow Room they are able to pick up necessities and diapers for the children under their supervision.
