The holiday season has passed – a whole new year ahead of us.

What are your intentions for this new year?

      Have you always wanted to know more about domestic violence?

What causes domestic violence?

     What is domestic violence?

How are the children affected?

     What are the barriers that prevent one from leaving their abuser?

What are some of the warning signs or characteristics of an abuser?

     Would you like to be an advocate for victims of domestic violence and/or their children?

If you would like to know answers to these questions and more -- would like to learn more about domestic violence and our program, please sign up for our upcoming Domestic Violence Education and Volunteer Training.

Our training begins on Monday, March 4th, ending on March 21st. Sessions are held Monday through Thursday evenings from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. Cost is $150.

Registration is going on now through Monday, February 25 at noon. There is a phone interview and a check list of information to share. Call 428-6626 to start the process.

A registration meeting will be held at noon on February 26. Payment is due on or before this time. There is an overview of Dove’s programs and Mission. You will also complete the paperwork needed to take the training.

Volunteers are needed to assist with the programs in Macon, Shelby, DeWitt and Moultrie Counties. Volunteers are encouraged to become involved in many areas of the programs, from direct service to clients to community education on the issue of domestic violence.

Is this the year you make a commitment to change?
