Mission Statement 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.
DOVE (Domestic Violence Ended), Inc. was founded in 1978 by the Quincy Mayor's Commission on Women and a group of committed community volunteers. Since 1978, DOVE has grown from one crisis hotline to a comprehensive multi-services organization. DOVE provides a range of services for adults who have been abused – physically and sexually as well as emotionally and financially. These services include: crisis intervention; safety assessment and planning; supportive counseling, advocacy, and case management; emergency shelter; legal advocacy; educational and support groups; and community outreach and education. DOVE is the only domestic violence shelter and community-based service provider based in Norfolk County; we also serve the greater South Shore.
