Soroptimist House

Soroptimist House Soroptimst House

Over the years community needs have changed and so has the role of the Soroptimist House.

The Soroptimist House at 1350 E. Washington was the result of a dream to provide a safe haven for abused children in Rockwall County. First land was donated, then a house and finally the funds to move the house. Club members worked tirelessly to raise donations of money, supplies and assistance to renovate the house.

It has been used as a counseling center by the Rockwall Child and Family Guidance program, a variety of youth programs by the Rockwall County Juvenile Services Department, housed the Rockwall County Extension office, home to previous service project Eloise's Closet and housed Women In Need, a local domestic violence agency. 

It is now the home of the Children's Advocacy Center for Rockwall County, which is one of our main service projects. Soroptimists  have  subsidized  the  rent  and  utilities  from  the  very  beginning  of  the  project. We  will  continue  to  raise  funds,  volunteer,  and  assist  the  CAC  in  any  way  we  can  to  help  provide  much  needed  services  to  the  children  of  Rockwall  County  who  are  victims  of  sexual  abuse,  assault,  and  neglect.  We  are  very  proud  to  be  a  Founding  Member  of  the  Children’s  Advocacy  Center  for  Rockwall  County.
