The Rees-Jones Foundation has made a $20 million gift to the TCU Institute of Child Development at Texas Christian University.
In recognition of the gift, the instructional building under construction in the university’s Intellectual Commons will be named Rees-Jones Hall. The facility will provide classroom space and will be the new home of the TCU Institute of Child Development and the TCU Energy Institute.
The institute conducts research, education, training and advocacy focused on children suffering from trauma-induced developmental issues that lead to social, behavioral and emotional problems.
Among the principal interests of the foundation are promoting the welfare of children suffering from abuse or neglect and providing relief to those facing mental health challenges. The foundation is the principal funder of the institute’s three-year Trust-Based Relational Intervention Evaluation Study, a proof-of-concept analysis to confirm the TBRI therapeutic model’s effectiveness in large-scale and institutional settings.
“This institute changes lives and, thanks to the generosity of the Rees-Jones Foundation and the continued leadership support from Jan and Trevor [Rees-Jones], this amazing work will no doubt continue to touch and restore many more families and children,” said Chancellor Victor J. Boschini Jr.
