A Survivor's Wisdom

“The chief of police referred me to DOVE. In my group support meeting, I felt that I was giving support, and I was getting support. I was talking to a group of women who understand what domestic violence is. I realized why should I stay in a relationship that I’m not happy with? There was a better way to live my life and I’m glad that I went to DOVE. I felt that I’m not alone and it gave me the strength to leave. And I did.” - Yaffa B.

Message from DOVE's Board President

"We are grateful to you, our growing community, for your steadfast and new support that made it possible for DOVE to transition this year and continue to be the compassionate and caring center you expect, and hundreds of survivors depend upon. This year marked a milestone in our mission to end domestic and partner violence, which began 45 years ago. Over the past 45 years of DOVE’s leadership, we have had the privilege of working with the community to help fund the work we do daily."

“I came to DOVE and I had a conversation and I began to understand that this wasn’t normal. It wasn’t just mean, it was far beyond that. When DOVE taught me about the cycle of violence and that it wasn’t my fault I learned that I could choose a new path. I started nursing school and graduated valedictorian. He had told me I was stupid and that I wasn’t worth anything. But by this time I knew, I didn’t have to believe it.”

Volunteer Spotlight

Stacy Murphy


Stacy Murphy first learned about DOVE by attending Let’s Dance, DOVE’s Spring Fundraiser. Interested in learning more, Stacy volunteered her time to support DOVE’s Holiday Assistance Program. During this volunteer opportunity Stacy got to organize items and walk DOVE program participants through our holiday Pop-Up Shop. Stacy expanded her volunteer efforts by joining the event committee in the summer of 2023. Stacy can provide unique feedback and support to help with planning our events given her prior experience attending both Let’s Dance and Harvesting Hope. Whether she’s supporting at the gala, soliciting for auction items, or working directly with our DOVE clients; we are so thankful for Stacy’s support as a volunteer!
