Welcome to the DOVE Program at 

New York Presbyterian Hospital's Social Work Department


Counseling and Support Services


DOVE social workers provide short term crisis intervention, individual and family counseling and support groups. We help in dealing with the police and the district attorney's office for survivors who want this type of assistance. We can assist with reimbursement for expenses you incur for reported criminal acts (i.e. hospital bills, transportation, lost wages, and other losses) via the New York State Crime Victims Board.


You can also receive counseling support by telephone. Our fully bilingual staff provide all these services in both English and Spanish.


All of our services are confidential and completely free of charge.
