    MONTGOMERY - There is no greater honor than to have the opportunity to work in partnership with, and on behalf of, survivors of domestic and sexual violence. It is also an honor to be associated with an organization that has been a great labor of love and has done so much to promote domestic peace, justice and equality for all the citizens of this community. With an excellent board of directors firmly committed to our mission, a highly professional and dedicated staff, and an array of outstanding services, One Place is well-positioned to face the future. As I come to understand the history of this organization, I feel as though the leaders of the past have placed us in a position to take a major step in our evolution.

    This evolution calls us to lead with our vision for change.

    Looking ahead, One Place will retain its traditional focus on providing services to survivors of domestic and sexual violence, stalking, elder abuse and human trafficking. By seeking to strengthen our organizational capacity we will continue to customize our programs and services to suit the changing needs of our community. To accomplish these goals, we will look to establish new partnerships with federal, state and local funders, the business community in the region, academic and professional organizations, foundations, civil society, and concerned individuals who share our vision regarding the core value of non-violence and human dignity.

    The challenges ahead are substantial, but opportunities abound.  To push forward for policies and actions that will support the victims and survivors we serve we will continue to need your support. We ask for your support so that we may carry on the amazing work of those that have gone before us and those yet to emerge. We strive to transform the social norms that fuel violence and hatred while also building the norms that support domestic peace, equality, and justice. As someone whose life course has been charted to an important degree by a persistent passion for preserving the human rights and dignity of all people, I am convinced that the peace and empowerment of societies is measured one person at a time.

    ONE PLACE RECEIVES "EFFICIENCY FORWARD GRANT" FROM THE ALABAMA BUSINESS CHARITABLE TRUST FUND

    MONTGOMERY – One Place Family Justice Center (One Place) today announced they are the recipients of a $10,000.00 Efficiency Forward Grant from The Alabama Business Charitable (ABC) Trust Fund. One Place will use these funds to update older florescent lighting to more efficient LEDs and to install programmable thermostats in their facility at 530 S. Lawrence Street in Montgomery.

    Executive Director Kaye Harris says, “One Place currently spends over $20,000 per year on electricity. It is estimated these improvements will reduce that cost on average $6,800 per year, or 1/3 of the total cost. The money we save on our electric bill each month is money that will go directly to the achievement of our mission. We are delighted to partner with the ABC Trust Fund.”

    Founded in 2009, as a one-stop shop for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, child and elder abuse, One Place’s mission and purpose is to be a comprehensive service and support center which provides greater safety, access to services, and confidentiality for victims of intimate partner violence, sexual assault, stalking and child and elder abuse.

    The Alabama Business Charitable (ABC) Trust Fund was created by Alabama Power in 1992 to partner with agencies to help low-income families pay their energy bills and support programs that promote energy efficiency for non-profits and low-income individuals and families.

    GOVERNOR KAY IVEY AWARDS GRANT TO ASSIST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE VICTIMS IN MONTGOMERY COUNTY

    MONTGOMERY— Governor Kay Ivey has awarded a $498,124.00 Grant to expand the free, professional services available to victims of domestic violence in Montgomery County.

    One Place Family Justice Center is using grant funds to expand its staff which will allow the center to assist 950 victims over the next year, officials said. The center serves as a central location where a multi-disciplinary team of professionals work together to provide coordinated services to victims.

    “Having the right personnel in place can make all the difference in the lives of those who have just been through something horrific.”  “I commend the work One Place has done for domestic violence victims in Montgomery County, and I’m proud that this grant will enable the center to hire staff to help even more people,” Governor Ivey said.

    One Place will hire two specialists who assist victims in obtaining crisis intervention services through the center or at other service organizations in the community. Additionally, the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office will use funds to hire an officer for One Place who specializes in abuse cases involving the elderly.

    The grant also will help the Family Sunshine Center to employ two case managers who will work directly through One Place to assist victims of domestic and sexual violence. The Family Sunshine Center will also hire a new legal advocate to work with clients who need safety and emergency legal assistance.

    The Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs (A.D.E.C.A.), administers the grant funds from funds made available to the state by the U.S. Department of Justice.

    “Thanks to the leadership of Gov. Ivey and ADECA’s partnership with local nonprofit organizations like One Place, invaluable services are being provided to victims of domestic violence.”  “Gov. Ivey is a strong advocate for domestic violence victims in Alabama, and this grant will help ensure those in the Montgomery area who have suffered from this terrible crime will have the resources they need to recover,” A.D.E.C.A. Director Kenneth Boswell said.

    A.D.E.C.A. manages a wide array of programs that support law enforcement and traffic safety, energy conservation, water resource management, economic development and recreation.
