FEBRUARY: WHAT DOE WE DO?

Dove House provides a wide array of services to child victims of sexual assault as well as their non-offending family members.  ALL of our direct services are provided at NO COST to the client. The first step in this proces is working with a Multidisciplinary Team. The video of the National Children's Alliance explains how a MDT works. As a Child Advocacy Center fully accredited through the National Children’s Alliance. 

Dove House’s multidisciplinary partners include the six law enforcement agencies having jurisdiction in Iredell and Alexander Counties, the District Attorney’s office, Department of Social Services in both Iredell and Alexander Counties, Guardian ad Litem program, medical and mental health personnel, and the Dove House staff.

On January 1st, 2022, Dove House will be entering our TWENTIETH year of service to our community! Join us in celebrating this milestone by donating $20 for 20 years of service

Our very first client, a sweet 15 year old girl, walked through our doors on September 9th, 2002. And there began our journey of seeking healing and justice for thousands of children and non-offending family members. Today we were able to serve an average of 4 children per week. 

All this is only possible with the support we have received over the last 20 years. With your support we are able to continue our work in advocacy and intervention, uphold our prevention outreach program and maintain medical and mental health programs. We are grateful and thankful for your support.
