Mission Statement

The DOVES Program's mission is to provide safe, secure shelter and empowerment services for women, men and children as they begin their lives free of domestic violence. We work with each individual supporting them, encouraging their efforts as they gain independence and move from a life that is controlled by abuse and degradation to a life that is free from abuse and control. The DOVES' staff provide focused, responsive services that will empower victims within the shelter and the community. Our staff and Board of Directors work diligently toward the establishment of a society where violence is not tolerated.


Background Statement

The Doves Domestic Violence Services began operation in Eastern Kentucky in the counties of Rowan, Montgomery, Bath, Menifee, and Morgan in October of 1993. The DOVES shelter was the last of the fifteen Kentucky Domestic Violence shelters to be opened.

The Doves Program has experienced much growth and development over our 20 year history due to a growing need for protection, empowerment, and a supportive environment where families can grow intellectually and spiritually while developing the skills necessary to live independently.

Today, DOVES shelters our families, (over 250 residents) in a nine bedroom home in a calm, tranquil setting. In shelter our residents receive an array of support services promoting the victim's wellbeing, strength, and safety. Counseling, financial management, job placement, parenting skills, referrals, court advocacy, homework, kids bedtime stories, helping families learn to play and respect themselves and each other, SMILES and HUGS. As a community partner DOVES provides community education and training for police, judges, hospitals, doctors, elementary and secondary schools. Presently DOVES is partnering with the University of Kentucky's Green Dot Anti Violence Initiative in our five county area.

Impact Statement

DOVES top three accomplishments for the past year has been, expanding our legal services to include and protect dating violence victims. House Bill 8 passed and became effective Jan 1, 2016. DOVES can now help victims file a TIPO (Temporary Interpersonal Protective Order). Another accomplishment would be, our ED is in a Chamber of Commerce Leadership class. This class has opened up doors and now DOVES is more well known in our community. Lastly, another accomplishment would be continuing to offer our much needed services 24/7 as well as 365 days a year.


Goals for the upcoming year are, expand children services, secure more funding, build a foundation to have a more active donor base.
