The DOVE Center will assist you if you are or have been a victim of rape or sexual assault. It is important to understand that this crime is not your fault. If you have experienced dating or sexual violence, we encourage you to meet with our trained staff to help you make the journey back to reclaiming yourself.

The DOVE Center offers a full range of rape recovery programs for primary and secondary victims of sexual assault, marital rape, date rape, and adult survivors of child sexual abuse. We have a 24-hour rape recovery advocate program to assist you at the hospital. We provide support, resources, and advocacy; we strive to walk with you through the uncertainty you are experiencing.

The effects of rape and sexual assault are long lasting and significant. Accessing counseling and other services to learn about how trauma affects the brain and body, how to deal with triggers, and other tools for safety and empowerment is essential to healing and regaining control over your life.
