Compassionate and Confidential – We’re here to help.
DOVES is here to help victims of domestic violence. Through our 24/7 hotline and our Outreach Centers we service thousands of men, women and children every year. We provide a 17 bed long-term therapeutically and educationally intensive shelter program, “Lorrie’s House” for women and children – the only shelter of its kind in the San Bernardino Mountains.
Help support DOVES and be part of the solution to end domestic violence by clicking one of the “Donate” buttons on any of our web pages.

“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
“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)
“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
