DOVE advocates assist survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence in the emergency rooms of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center. Advocates volunteer their time and energy to ensure that survivors' voices are heard, safety is assured, and other immediate needs are met, and appropriate linkages to important resources are established.
DOVE Advocates are first-responders, and as such can play a vital role and make the difference in the lives of survivors, family members and friends in the immediate aftermath of the trauma.
Our advocates are women and men of at least 21 years of age, and of all racial and ethnic backgrounds. They all share a commitment in wanting to address the needs of survivors and their families during their most vulnerable moments.
