Bracelet created by: Dawn Hayes
During a support group session at DOVE, a survivor of domestic violence reflected on her experience, “the last eight weeks have been the hardest of my life. I left my family, my home, and my life. But this group has given me the support that I needed to keep moving forward.”
The services that DOVE, Inc. provide work and are saving lives. We see DOVE’s work in action when shelter guests leave our program with new jobs or school degrees, with self-esteem and coping skills. DOVE empowers women. One client said, “Coming here makes me realize I can have a better future. I never knew that before” and another client who said, “I’ve changed. I feel powerful now.”
Why does DOVE work? DOVE works because it runs on empathy. It works because every bit of DOVE, from the waiting room walls lined with inspirational quotes, to the therapy rooms painted beautiful colors, to our well trained advocates , is fused with compassion, empowerment, love and hope.
Please show us your support by wearing this bracelet. Show the world that together, we can End Domestic Violence.
