DOVE operates a 6-bedroom emergency shelter for victims fleeing domestic violence.


Our gender inclusive shelter provides refuge for both single individuals and families. 


While in DOVE’s shelter, program participants are supported to ground themselves after crisis or a period of homelessness. DOVE Advocates use trauma informed practices to help survivors look inward as they begin to discover who they will become in the aftermath of abuse.


DOVE Advocates also assist program participants to seek transitional and/or permanent housing, to connect children with school and begin to plan for life beyond the shelter. 


Upon moving out, our program participants are able to continue to work with the staff as they transition towards self-sustainability.   


Safelink is a Massachusetts run hotline for survivors seeking emergency shelter due to domestic violence. 


If you or someone you know is seeking shelter please call 1-877-785-2020
