“I am a former client of DOVES. This program has been a great inspiration to me. The program helped me tremendously by making me aware of myself as an important person. It has helped me in the areas of self-esteem, positive outlook, parenting, and responsibility. I believe the program does help, but it is up to person to want to do it. Thank you and many blessings to all.” -Client who completed the six-month Shelter Program at Lorrie’s House in 2013
All services offered are free of charge and include:
“Dawn (legal advocate) was excellent. She helped me complete my restraining order paperwork, and took me down to court twice. We were successful getting both the temporary and the permanent restraining orders. I cannot express my gratitude enough and I feel much safer sleeping at night.” – Outreach Client (Legal Services)
In 2013 our 24/7 hotline answered 568 hotline calls. We had 3,132 peer counseling sessions and provided 660 hours of legal services.
”I came in here helpless and hopeless and each group and individual counseling session leaves me more and more “able” and feeling as though I have values and that there is hope for to be me and that is a beautiful thing – to be me.” -Outreach Client
We also provide prevention and educational services to the community.
All outreach services are also provided at our Twin Peaks Outreach Center at 26696 Hwy. 189, Twin Peaks, CA 92391.
