DOVES Network

was birthed at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in April 2020 as an action step by Founder & Executive Director Tiffany Mensah. A survivor of Childhood Domestic Violence and Domestic Violence, Tiffany's passion for bringing peace and laying seeds of hope and healing to survivors fueled the birth of this DOVES network.

Tiffany knows firsthand what it feels like to witness her parent being abused, fighting for survival while fleeing the abuse, and trying to process that trauma as a developing child. Most importantly, Tiffany knows the impact of not healing from that trauma and proves that when you do the healing work to heal, you heal from the inside out.

DOVES, which stands for daily overcoming violence and embracing safety, is a beacon of peace headquartered in Maricopa, Arizona. It provides teens with a healing space that isn't therapy but strengths and skilled based opportunities to heal in their way.

We Focus on 

  1. ​​Childhood Domestic Violence (CDV) when a person grows up living in a home with violence between their parents or violence towards a parent. The children's power and control wheel is shown on the home page and is used to help identify the effects of witnessing and hearing the violence has on children.                         and the root cause of CDV...                         

  2. Domestic Violence a pattern of abusive and threatening actions used to dominate power and control over a spouse or in an intimate dating partner or spouse. An abusive partner uses many types of abuse. Domestic violence isn't just physical, it also includes sexual violence, threats, and intimidation, stalking, digital, emotional, psychological, financial control, and spiritual abuse.                                                                       

  3. Sexual Violence is any sexual act or attempt to obtain a sexual act by violence or coercion, acts to traffic a person or acts directed against a person's sexuality, regardless of the relationship to the victim..
