By WSFA 12 News StaffCONNECT

The Montgomery County Task Force on Domestic Violence is celebrating it's twentieth anniversary. The force held a breakfast on Friday to celebrate, inside the Montgomery Advertiser's Freedom Room.

In 1994, the task force was established to unite prosecution, law enforcement, and victim services agencies to respond to domestic violence in the community. Each month the group has met, and over time created a coordinated community response to things like domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, family violence and abuse in Montgomery.

Task force members also created the first Family Justice Center in the state now known as the Brooks, Sellers One Place Family Justice Center. The center is what officials called a "one stop shop" that provides services for victims ranging from domestic and dating violence, stalking, sexual assault and child/elder abuse.
