"The recent case involving Jared Remy has brought the serious issue of domestic violence to the table. It can be very difficult for some women to leave an abusive situation because of the uncertainty of leaving. DOVE provides the assistance that these women and their children need to make a very difficult and brave decision," said Paul Barbadoro, a partner at the Firm. "The work DOVE does with victims of domestic violence is exemplary and we're hoping that our fellow tenants at 300 Crown Colony will agree and assist this very worthy cause."
The current drive represents the second drive Baker, Braverman and Barbadoro, P.C. have undertaken for DOVE. Last November, the Firm hosted a coat and canned good drive on DOVE's behalf.
DOVE, Inc. provides a broad range of preventive and responsive services to victims of domestic violence and their families. Over the past year, DOVE has provided emergency shelter to 38 adults, 34 children, answered more than 2,500 hotline calls, provided community-based services to more than 900 clients and educated more than 2,000 teens and community members on the many complex issues surrounding domestic violence.
"Now more than ever women in abusive domestic situations need our assistance," said Claudia Cuscianna, DOVE senior manager of development and communications. "We thank Quincy neighbors at the firm of Baker, Braverman andBarbadoro, P.C. for stepping up to collect these much needed and appreciated items and raise awareness for the families DOVE supports."
