Dallas County District Attorney Susan Hawk toured Resource Center with CEO Cece Cox, today, Wednesday, Feb. 10.

It was the Republican’s first visit to the center since taking office last year.

Rafael McDonnell, Resource Center’s communications and advocacy manager, said he approached Hawk about touring after December’s meeting addressing the uptick of violence along Cedar Springs.

Hawk was familiar with the Resource Center from her time as judge, but the tour offered an opportunity to see how the center operates.

Hawk’s tour included stops in the food pantry, which is currently under construction, and a chance to meet center staff.

McDonnell said the center is interested in developing a relationship with Hawk and her staff. The tour hopefully established that relationship.
