Mission Statement

In 1978, the Violence Against Women Task Force of the Quincy Mayor's Commission on the Status of Women founded DOVE, Inc. (Domestic Violence Ended) as a 24 hour emergency hotline for battered women. Over the past 29 years, DOVE, Inc. has grown into a multi-service agency providing emergency shelter, legal and non-legal advocacy, community outreach and education, and crisis intervention to women and children who have been abused, emotionally, physically and/or sexually. DOVE, Inc., the only domestic violence shelter on the South Shore, serves women and children from all of Massachusetts and occasionally out of state.


We provide temporary housing for women and children in a protected, caring, confidential environment. While here, women receive advocacy, case management, supportive counseling and children's services. A professional team of staff and volunteers provides counseling and crisis intervention to women and children living with domestic violence. Our programs and services also include a children's program, transitional housing, outreach and community education. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age to volunteer in our agency.
