Standing Together Against Rape (STAR)

We are dedicated to serving sexual assault victims, in and around Central Alabama 24/7/365, even through this national pandemic. 

If you or someone you know has been sexually assaulted please call our 24-hour crisis hotline at: 334-213-1227 or 1-888-908-7273

What does this mean to one victim?  When you know one victim, you understand the importance of now. When you know two victims, you understand the importance of this moment. When you have lost count, you understand the importance of this month.  



If you are having an emergency and need immediate help, please dial 911. If you are in need of a sexual assault exam, please call our after-hours hotline number (334-213-1227)

One Place Family Justice Center is open Monday-Friday, 8:00 am-5:00 pm. We are located at 530 South Lawrence Street, Montgomery, Alabama 36014 (near Montgomery Public Library-downtown area). Our building is a secured site with video surveillance and restricted access. Our staff monitors all exits and entrances to ensure the safety of everyone who visits One Place.

We are here to help you with safety planning and to connect you to services you may need. Our on-site partners, Montgomery Police Department and Alabama Legal Services, are at One Place and ready to help.  We want you to be safe and we will make every effort to find you options for help.

We are providing acute forensic exams through our STAR Program (Standing Together Against Rape) to all children, adolescents and adults who have been sexually assaulted. 

There are few things in this world more difficult than navigating victimization. We proudly and diligently serve all survivors throughout the River Region.

#HelpandHopeBeginatOnePlace #Help&HopeBeginHere


One Place Family Justice Center or “One Place”, as we like to call it, began this fiscal year in a deluge of COVID-19 issues, economic disparities, and social and political upheaval.

But throughout this year of social, emotional, and physical challenges, I am pleased to share that One Place continued to serve victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, elder abuse, and child abuse.

As Board members, we have been good fiduciaries, steering One Place towards a sustainable future by adopting sound, ethical, and legal governance as well as by making sure One Place has adequate resources to advance our mission. We have made obtaining those resources a priority. Board members, thank you for your time, commitment, and service! We have accomplished a lot and we have also grown as a family. 

Everybody deserves relationships free from domestic and sexual violence. When you are ready, our One Place staff will be there to listen and help. Please join me in thanking our amazing executive team and staff for the great services they provide to our clients. Our staff are silent heroes. They are brave workers that risk their lives to save others, even during this horrific pandemic. Thank you for your dedication to the victims in the nine counties we service.

It is our vision to help reduce homicides; increase victim safety; empower victims; reduce fear and anxiety for victims and their children; reduce recantation and minimization; wrap the victim in services, and hold offenders accountable. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced massive changes in our daily operations and there has been an increase in domestic violence, sexual abuse, and child abuse. School closures have further amplified abuse and exploitation of women and girls. We realize that many organizations are asking for your help during this deadly pandemic, but we are asking you to find some way in your budget to help victims of domestic and sexual violence, child and elderly abuse, and human trafficking. Your support would be greatly appreciated.
