ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The Albuquerque Family Advocacy Center this week marked its 10th year of service to survivors of domestic and interpersonal violence.
The center, which houses social services and police in one easy-access stop in a Downtown office building, is taking the anniversary to relaunch itself, hiring a coordinator to remind the community what the center has to offer.
“We are truly a beacon of light in a very dark world,” said Albuquerque Police Department Cmdr. Paul Szych at a ceremony marking the anniversary on Thursday.
“Prior to the Family Advocacy Center, they (survivors) would have a lot of stops to go to” across town, Szych said.
