Chinese Advocacy Program
Cultural and linguistic barriers are often present in survivor’s consideration to seek help and access services. It is DOVE’s mission to partner with diverse communities, families, and individuals impacted by partner abuse from all backgrounds.
Considering the remarkable representation of Asian communities, particularly Chinese immigrants in DOVE’s catchment area, DOVE provides culturally and linguistically specific, client-centered, and trauma-informed supportive counseling, advocacy, and assistance to survivors seen through DOVE’s community-based services in one or more of the following:
Culturally specific danger assessment and safety planning
Connecting survivors with internal and external services and referrals, e.g. legal and immigration, housing, healthcare, and benefits advocacy
Psycho-educational and/or support groups
In addition, DOVE provides targeted outreach to Chinese/Chinese American communities in the form of information-sharing, consultation, training, and workshop tailored to specific needs to promote awareness of partner violence among community members, service providers, and other relevant groups.
All services are free and confidential
Services are offered in Mandarin Chinese and English
