Advocacy & Emergency Help
We are here to listen, plan, and understand. Call, e-mail, or text us and we will respond. DoVE serves as the “survivor’s advocate” in crisis situations and through everyday stresses. firstname.lastname@example.org
DoVE offers legal advocacy as well as a once monthly legal clinic. We offer assistance in obtaining orders of protection from King County, and have trained advocates to assist you.
Survivor Support Group
DoVE offers two weekly groups for survivors (one for women and one for men) on the Island. The nature of island living is isolating and that is compounded for those in a domestic violence situation. Come and be a part of a group that understands.
The best defense against domestic violence is prevention. Join our next Advocacy for Rookies Training, Teen Dating Abuse Prevention workshop (for teens), or Families for Safe Dating talk! E-mail email@example.com for more information.
For survivors/clients of DoVE.
We need your help. Please see our paid and volunteer opportunities and let us know if you are interested in helping out.
The DoVE Project, an anti-domestic violence program, was formed in April of 2011 to address the needs of domestic violence survivors on Vashon Island. Statistics from King County have shown that when domestic violence services are available on-island, an average of 60 survivors per year are served. In 2006, 2009, and 2010, with no services available, less than 15 survivors received services from any King County providers. The travel time and ferry ticket cost make getting to services too difficult.
