Mission Statement

The Domestic and Other Violence Emergencies (DOVE) Program is a grant-based program at New York Presbyterian Hospital, Columbia University Medical Center that provides and orchestrates a comprehensive range of free services to address the complicated needs of victims of violence identified throughout our medical campus, and from within the Washington Heights and Inwood communities of Northern Manhattan.

Description

The DOVE Program serves victims of physical and sexual assault, domestic violence and elder abuse. DOVE staff and volunteers provide support and invaluable information about resources available to them. They accompany victims during their stay in the emergency department, a time when the victim is at her/his most vulnerable, a time when she/he may feel alone, frightened, ashamed and unsure of what has happened to her/him and help him/her to cope with the violence and decide what her/his next steps may be. In the year of 2008 over 500 victims received a wide range of services provided by DOVE. Program staff and volunteers provide these services free of charge.
