Quinton’s House, a child advocacy center in Frankfort, held its open house and re-dedication ceremony Wednesday at its new location at 659 Washington Avenue.
“I just want to tell this community that they are amazing,” said Quinton’s House Executive Director Denise Barney. “People have stepped up in unbelievable ways to make this a reality here. It’s cool.”
The new facility is much bigger than the original facility that was located near the new one less than a block away. The current digs is about 3,500 square feet compared to 500 to 600 square feet in the other facility. It is located in a four bedroom house which allows for an interview room, a living/waiting room, an observation room for Department of Child Services or detectives to watch the interviews and a children’s clothes closet.
“This allows us to do more for the community,” said Barney.
The new facility was officially dedicated with a ribbon cutting with local and city officials as well as board members for the agency.
