Facility Information: Because of the generosity of the community, the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center moved into a new, state-of-the-art 56,000 square foot facility in January 2013.  Named The Rees-Jones Center for Child Protection, the building honors the significant contribution that Jan and Trevor Rees-Jones made on behalf of the children of Dallas County. Fewer than 150 additional donors made it possible to construct the entire $11 million facility. The building was developed with the utmost care, taking into consideration our clients, the children that will make use of the facility. The new center serves as a nurturing environment, connected to nature through the use of warm, organic and familiar textures and shapes. The design creates a comfortable, safe, inviting and serene facility, a place where healing can begin. Organic materials such as wood and limestone convey warmth, strength and stability.  The soft color palette is meant to communicate the caring nature and dedication of the staff and service providers while subliminally orienting and providing direction throughout the facility.

Facility Information: Square footage: 12,000. The Wichita Falls Center was originally a Victorian home built in the early 1990’s. The home was later expanded and operated as a funeral home until late 1999. The facility is ideal for a Children’s Advocacy Center because of the homelike interior and the amount of space available for offices and meeting rooms. The Center’s secure entrance is monitored via video and audio assuring our families privacy and security. Inside the reception office leads to the Family Room which was the original living room of the home. A Children’s Playroom and offices of the Executive Director, Social Services Coordinator and Outreach Services Coordinator are adjacent to the Family Room. The Forensic Interview Room is separated from the Family Room and is adjacent to the Recording and Observation Room. Just down the hall from the Family Room is the Counseling Office which is large enough to accommodate play, art, and movement therapy.  A spacious Conference Room that will easily seat 50 people is located on the east side of the building on the ground floor. A second Family Room is adjacent to the Conference Room. This is second Family Room allows the Center to accommodate multiple families and to afford privacy to families in crisis. The second floor of the Center consists of offices for CPS investigators and Wichita Falls Police Detectives along with kitchen/break room. A restroom is located on each floor of the Center. On the west side of the building, the Community Partners Rainbow House operates in approximately 3700 square feet, which includes over 2000 square feet of display room, the Director’s office, a conference room and two restrooms.
