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.  


From the Desk of our Executive Director, 
Marjorie Baker


If you are having an emergency and need immediate help, please dial 911.

One Place Family Justice Center remains 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).

We are here to help you with safety planning and links to services you may need during this time. Our onsite partners including Montgomery Police Department, City Magistrate and Legal Services are maintaining services at One Place.  We want you to be safe and will make every effort to get you safety options.

To provide safe services to you and in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the good health and well-being of our staff and partners, we have established some basic guidelines to continue providing immediate services.   We are allowing only the victim in our facility during this time, no childcare is available, and a brief screening about your current health is done when you arrive. 

Standing Together Against Rape (STAR) remains opened and we are providing acute forensic exams to all children and adults who have been sexually assaulted.

April 1, 2020

Dear Friend,

“The COVID-19 pandemic challenges all of us, but for a victim of domestic violence or sexual assault, it can be a lethal period. Social isolation is a typical controlling tactic used by an abuser, and in these uncertain times, victims are even more at risk of dying or being severely injured at the hands of her partner.”  —  Marjorie Baker, Executive Director

On April 3, 2020, communities across central Alabama planned to gather after dusk, lift their lights and Take Back the Night! This annual event is focused on increasing awareness and attention on the critical issues of sexual assault, domestic violence and sexual abuse. This was to be the major fundraiser/donation drive for the One Place Family Justice Center’s Standing Together Against Rape (STAR) program. COVID-19 intervened and all gatherings to illuminate a continuous issue in our communities have been cancelled.

The STAR team continues to support and advocate for victims despite the pandemic. We are an essential service provider conducting forensic exams for victims of sexual assault as well as attempting to provide services for their families 24/7. In the past month alone, we have seen a 59% increase in sexual assault in the counties that we service. Increases are being seen in the state and in the nation.

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

For the next weeks, we have a curfew, the streets are empty, but sexual assault continues to plague women and children and yes, even men. These are the victims we serve.

We need your help! The cost of service continues to increase. This year we may not gather but we can cast our light.  Help us Take Back the Night in 2020! Speak out against sexual assault, give and advocate for victims of sexual violence, sexual abuse and domestic violence. Your one time or monthly donation will support forensic sexual assault exams for adults and children. Did you know that STAR has the only certified pediatric unit for forensic sexual exams in central Alabama?
