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, and most recently housed the Rockwall County Extension office.

A new renovation project is in the works for the Soroptimist House, after which it will again be used by the club for meetings and service projects.
