How we help

DOVE provides free, confidential, and trauma sensitive support services that promote the rights of survivors and prevent violence.

Our advocacy services are individually tailored to survivors’ needs, and span the range from crisis intervention to intensive advocacy.

DOVE practices mobile advocacy, meaning that our advocates can meet clients in safe places of the client’s choosing, i.e. the school counselors office, a church, doctor’s office, etc.

For youth, our intervention program has the following components:

Taking referrals from school counselors to support youth who have experienced or witnessed domestic violence, teen dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking.

Working with youth clients and providing comprehensive services with other service providers as needed to provide holistic care for each teen.

Meeting teens either at the school itself or at the DOVE office.
