DOVE’s Mission

DOVE is committed to partnering with diverse communities,
families, and individuals impacted by domestic violence.
We promote hope, healing, safety, and social change by providing
a broad range of preventive and responsive services.

Statement of Affirmation & Welcome

DOVE welcomes refugee and immigrant survivors both documented and
undocumented, people with disabilities, people who are deaf or hard of hearing,
people of color, and LGBQ/T and gender non-conforming individuals.


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.
