One Place Family Justice Center Staff

Rebecca McWilliams

Executive Director

“I am proud to walk through the halls of One Place and to know that we are a place of refuge for the victims and survivors that walk through our door seeking help. We can give the gift of a safe place for people that need us the most.”  

As Executive Director, Rebecca oversees fundraising, strategy, and organizational growth of One Place Family Justice Center, placing the needs of victims, survivors and the community as her top priority.

Prior to One Place, Rebecca spent seven years as the Executive Director of Girls on the Run Birmingham where she developed and implemented a strategic plan for program growth and philanthropic giving.  A Baltimore, MD native and a graduate of American University in Washington D.C. (B.A., Public Communications), she has lived and worked in Washington D.C. and New Orleans, LA before moving to Birmingham in 2016 with her family.

It was around the same time as her move to Birmingham that she was introduced to the pervasive, complex and deeply important issue of domestic violence through a personal connection.  Since then, Rebecca has volunteered on the executive committee of the Nicole Addimando Community Defense Committee, where she is involved in advocacy and communication on issues surrounding domestic violence and criminalized survival.

She is proud and honored to serve as the new leader of One Place Family Justice Center.
