The Rees-Jones Center for Foster Care Excellence officially opened Monday, giving foster children a new, $20 million home, D Healthcare Daily reported.
The 15,000-square foot center gives Children’s Health two facilities with a combined 13 exam rooms, 10 therapy rooms, 10 private interview rooms, two CPS offices, three training rooms, and 25 providers who will handle about 4,000 visitors a year. The center is unique and unlike anything else in the state, D Healthcare said.
The majority of the funds came from the Rees-Jones Foundation and a $1 million donation from The Meadows Foundation.
Currently, there are 46,000 children in foster care in the state.
