Through the DOVE program, we provide free, compassionate, and comprehensive care to victims of violent crimes (ages 12 and above), including domestic violence, physical and sexual assault, and elder abuse. Our services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Through this program, we also offer violence prevention education to those at risk for becoming victims, and for community and healthcare providers in a position to identify and assist individuals and families affected by violence.
