We are partnering with DOVE in Quincy this year for our Annual Mother’s Day drive. Donations will be accepted until May 3rd. At that time, gift baskets will be put together and delivered to the Mom’s living in the DOVE home in hopes to make their Mother’s Day special.
A little about DOVE:
At DOVE (DOmestic Violence Ended), we believe that all people have the right to live without fear of abuse. Since our founding in 1978, DOVE has expanded from a crisis hotline to a multi-service organization providing comprehensive direct services and support for victims of dating and domestic violence, as well as their children. DOVE works specifically with adults, teens, and children who have been abused, emotionally and financially, as well as physically and sexually. DOVE’s services include crisis intervention, danger assessment and safety planning, supportive counseling, emergency shelter, legal advocacy and representation, and community outreach, education, and training. DOVE remains the only domestic violence shelter and community-based service provider based in Norfolk County, and also serves the greater South Shore. DOVE strives to educate individuals, families and the community at-large to help change the societal conditions that allow domestic violence to persist. Our efforts address the isolation and vulnerability faced by victims of domestic violence and the enormous emotional, psychological, and financial toll violence takes on victims, their children, and the community.
