About Denise:

My first introduction to RDI was in 2006 at a “Get on Board” fair at City Place. As I entered the room, I was drawn to RDI’s mission of working with at-risk children who, by no fault of their own, were living in shelters. By my having a degree in early childhood development from Texas Woman’s University and having served as a daycare director, I felt that my knowledge could and would be a great asset.

I have volunteered with RDI for many years and received the Individual Volunteer Promise Award in 2010. I have previously served on our Executive, Advisory and Auxiliary boards. I have a caring and patient heart and a strong love for children, especially those at-risk.

  • Coming soon!
About Cynthia:

Working with children has always been my passion, especially serving at-risk children and families. Rainbow Days has given me the platform to do just that for the past nine years! I fell in love with the children we serve because I was able to see myself in them as a child. I’ve seen firsthand how our services have positively impacted the children we serve by teaching them to choose drug-free alternative ways when dealing with anger and frustration. The generation we are teaching are the future leaders of tomorrow, and I know that our services pave their way to success! Rainbow Days always goes above and beyond to make sure every child is heard! It is an honor and privilege to be able to be part of an organization that changes lives every day!

When I’m not at Rainbow Days, you’ll find me spending time with my family, watching movies, organizing, cleaning or dancing.
