Birmingham's Prescott House and its contributions to the community received a special honor Tuesday morning.  

The Prescott House is the recipient of the 2012 FBI Director's Community Leadership Award.  "We are extremely fortunate to have the Prescott House in our community.  It assists not only us, but our state and local colleagues immeasurably," said Special Agent in Charge Richard D. Schwein, Jr.

Prescott House Executive Director Mary Murphy accepted the award.  She will travel to Washington, D.C. in April where she, and other recipients from across the country, will be honored by FBI Director Robert Mueller.

The Prescott House is the nation's second oldest children's advocacy center in the United States.  It provides services to children who may have witnessed or were victims of abuse or trauma.
