Scott Johnson - Montgomery Advertiser

The One Place Family Justice Center soon could bear the names of two women who helped bring into existence the center that serves domestic violence victims.

Montgomery County District Attorney Daryl Bailey asked the Montgomery County Commission on Monday to rename the center the Brooks-Sellers One Place Family Justice Center.

The name honors former District Attorney Ellen Brooks and current Family Sunshine Executive Director Karen Sellers.

Both were intimately involved in making possible the center, which brings a wide array of services for victims under one roof.

County Commissioner Dan Harris serves on the board of the Family Justice Center and said he wholeheartedly supports the name change.

“I can think of no two more deserving individuals” for the honor, Harris said.
