It is hard to believe that the Advocacy Center has been in operation for twenty years. The Board of Directors actually formed in October 1991 to begin the process of fulfilling requirements to become an official Advocacy Center. In July of 1992 the Board leased the house located at 104 Alabama Avenue, NW, in Fort Payne. Civic groups took on each of the rooms to paint and furnish. The community was involved from the beginning. I was hired as Director in January 1993 and we opened our doors to serve children and families.
