posted on:

A program that brings together more than 20 state and local agencies is serving as a model for how to serve the victims of domestic violence, child and elder abuse, and sexual assault. One Place Family Justice Center is the first family justice center in the state of Alabama, providing law enforcement assistance, counseling, advocacy, sexual assault examinations, prosecution, civil legal help and referrals. By bringing these services together under one roof, victims no longer have to tell their story over and over again, or travel to multiple locations throughout town to find the help they need.
