    One Place Family Justice Center congratulates longtime Attorney Jim Smith, who was recently awarded the Alabama State Bar's first Pro Bono Public Interest Award in July 2020. Practicing since 1978, Smith began his career with Legal Services Alabama, Inc., handling thousands of cases ranging from wage garnishment and foreclosure to domestic violence and sexual assault. In 2010, Smith became the first attorney housed at One Place Family Justice Center, which he helped founded.

    Jim, thank you for your continued dedicated service to helping low-income individuals and victims of domestic violence across the River Region!

    As of April 2019, the Standing Together Against Rape (STAR) program, formerly of Lighthouse Counseling Center, will be operated and administered by One Place Family Justice Center at 530 S. Lawrence Street, Montgomery, Alabama.  The program continues as one of the many existing co-located services at One Place in support of victims of domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, sexual assault, child/elder abuse and human trafficking.

    STAR was founded in 1974 by the Montgomery Chapter of the National Council of Jewish Women.  Initially, and for over thirty (30) years, the program was operated by volunteers with Lighthouse Counseling Center, which provided professional counseling and support for victims in need of services beyond those that volunteers were able to provide.

    Today, One Place Family Justice Center's STAR program operates sexual assault services for persons of all ages in nine (9) River Region counties (Autauga, Elmore, Lowndes, Montgomery, Butler, Crenshaw, Dallas, Wilcox and Perry), with the main office located in the City of Montgomery.  The S.T.A.R. program provides forensic evidentiary examinations to victims of sexual assault, in addition to advocating, supporting and providing immediate crisis counseling for victims.  S.T.A.R. also provides a 24-7 hotline, referral services, information, and sexual assault awareness for the community and first responders.

    Services have now been expanded to include pediatric acute sexual assault examinations performed by trained Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (S.A.N.E.), formerly only available to central Alabama residents at Children's Hospital in Birmingham.

    Through the generous contributions and support of our funders and donors, One Place has added a second examination room specifically for child victims.

    In 2017-2018 the S.T.A.R. program served 289 victims of sexual assault.

    Recent statistics show 1 in 5 women and 1 in 71 men will be raped at some point in their life.  1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused before they turn 18 years old.  20-25% of college women and 15% of college men are victims of forced sex during their time in college.  91% of victims of rape and sexual assaults are not reported to police.  The prevalence of false reporting is low-between 2% and 10%.

    Being a victim of sexual assault is not your fault.  Nothing in what you say, the way you look, where you are, or who you are with gives anyone else the right to hurt you.  It does not matter if you are dating or have ever been intimate with the person who sexually assaulted you; it does not give that person the right to force you to participate in sexual acts if you don't want to, event if you have had sexual activity of any sort with them in the past.  It's still wrong.

    If you or someone you know is a victim of sexual violence, please call the One Place Family Justice Center's STAR Crisis Line at 334.213.1227 or 888.908.7273.
