Child Protective Services (CPS) promotes the safety and welfare of displaced children by providing services to help youth in foster care successfully transition to adulthood.
CPS receives donations year-round from many organizations throughout Liberty County while maintaining the Rainbow Room, a place to organize and store donations that go directly to displaced children in the form of supplies and clothing needed to meet basic needs.
Liberty Elks Lodge #2019 brainstormed ideas for donations that were outside the norm. but would effectively provide children with a sense of security and ownership when placed with a foster family. Next, it was time to present the idea to the Liberty County Child Welfare Board.
It was decided that duffel bags with locks would be a great addition to the Rainbow Room. These items will give them a place to store their belongings and provide them with something that was theirs moving forward.
The LCCWB and the Rainbow Room will always accept any donation, year-round, of new items. Items that older children can always use are hygiene products and school supplies.
Liberty Elks Lodge #2019 submitted an application, along with a detailed project plan, to the National Elks Foundation and was awarded the Beacon Grant, which funded this project. The members of Liberty Elks Lodge #2019 would like to thank all parties involved who assisted with the ideas, funding, and implementation of this project and for keeping the interest of our future generations at the forefront.
