WELCOME TO DOVE
At DOVE, we believe that all people have the right to live without fear of abuse. DOVE is the only domestic violence organization, including shelter, in Norfolk County and also serves the greater South Shore.
Since its founding in 1978, DOVE has expanded from a volunteer-run crisis hotline to providing comprehensive support services to victims of domestic and dating violence – women and men, adults and teens. These services include a 24-hour hotline, emergency shelter, legal assistance, crisis intervention services, supportive education and counseling, support groups, and assistance accessing governmental and community-based services.
Further, DOVE conducts community outreach and education through presentations, workshops, and trainings, for health and social service providers, businesses, faith-based groups, community and civic groups, and others. DOVE also operates a prevention initiative, working presently with a number of high schools. Finally, DOVE’s Neighborhood Organizing program seeks to engage individuals, local merchant, and community groups to actually change the norms around the use of violence with a goal of preventing violence.
