Basic & Urgent Needs

Oftentimes, when children come into CPS custody, all they may have is the clothes on their back.

 

CPTC sponsors the Rainbow Room, which provides emergency & non-emergency resources for children & 

families. Items can include diapers, 

unused clothing, formula, hygiene 

items, safety products- and more!

Parental Support

CPTC supports & funds groups and treatment efforts for parents within the CPS system. This may include parent support classes, special trainings, and substance abuse support systems.

 

We believe that providing these tools to parents can change the lives and outcome for these children.

Each situation is unique and requires

individual attention and planning. CPTC provides funds to help obtain assistance to nurture healing & growth.

Caseworker Assistance

CPTC understands how challenging CPS

casework can be! We believe that caring 

and dedicated caseworkers can make a significant impact on the lives of children and families!

 

CPTC strives to engage, encourage, and help support caseworkers within Tarrant County.

Childhood Experiences

CPTC believes that every child should have a ‘childhood’. Sometimes children don’t have the oppurtunity to just be kids, so CPTC helps support these efforts in special circumstances.

 

These experiences may include birthday celebrations, educational & summer camps, tutoring, holiday parties, and outings for siblings that have been separated.

Events & Fundraising

CPTC participates in and conducts events

throughout the year to help children & families. We understand that without volunteers and the help of the community- our efforts would fall short.

 

We are always looking for sponsors and volunteers to help our mission within Tarrant County. Please contact us

if you are interested in helping our ongoing efforts.
