Next month, CurlyRed is giving back 10% of all of our February sales to two great charities, one here in Garrett County (our new community) and one in Baltimore (our hometown).
Today we want to shed a little light on The Dove Center, in Oakland, Maryland. The mission of the Dove Center is to provide “safety, advocacy, and counseling to individuals whose lives have been shattered by domestic violence and/or sexual assault, and strives to expand public awareness of those issues.”
They have a goal of “having every client live free from abuse after leaving the program,” and want to reach as many victims as possible. They do this through a 26-week program called “The Abuse Intervention Program” with individual and group counseling included.
They also provide free services, such as: Individual counseling, 24/7 help-line, 24/7 emergency shelter, Advocacy with other systems, Accompaniment to legal, medical, and other related appointments, and 911 cell phones.
We are so delighted to assist this organization that is doing such good in our new community, and giving victims of domestic violence and/or sexual assault is safe place to go in Garrett County. For more information, please contact the Dove Center at (301) 334-9000.
