The very first child to benefit from the Van Zandt County Rainbow Room was "Annie". "Annie" was 14 months old and living in deplorable conditions. When caseworkers and Sheriff's deputies arrived at her home at 2:00 a.m., they found this underweight little angel wrapped in a urine soaked pillow case, lying in a filthy playpen surrounded by half filled bottles of clotted milk. Her hair was matted, she was horribly dirty and she smelled bad. Because the Rainbow Room had just opened, "Annie's" caseworker was able to take her straight there. She filled a diaper bag with baby wash and baby lotion, Desitin for her diaper rash, and a tiny little dress and pajamas. She grabbed diapers and wipes and baby powder. "Annie" was given a bath in the sink in the Justice Center which is located in front of the Rainbow Room. For the first time in what may have been weeks, Annie was clean, fed and properly dressed. She was now ready for the start of a new life in a safe foster home that could meet her needs. Her caseworker told us how happy she was that the Rainbow Room existed. In the past, she would have had to provide for these needs from her own pocket, or the child would have simply gone without.
