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.

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

It has been used as a counseling center by the Rockwall Child and Family Guidance program, and for a variety of youth programs by the Rockwall County Juvenile Services Department.  It currently houses the offices of the Rockwall County Extension Service. 

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.

Community Garden

The Soroptimist House Community Garden was started in 2002 by a local Master Gardener as a community service project for boys serving juvenile probation.

Garden plots are now available for rent by anyone in Rockwall who wants to plant a small garden and may not have the space on their own property.

Plots are 12'x12' and can be used to grow vegetables, herbs or flowers.
