Letter from the Executive Director of Dove, Inc.: Coordinating efforts to address unmet needs and social injustices.

Over the past 48 years, the religious organizations, volunteers, advocates, and staff of Dove, Inc. have been a positive force for collaboration on the tough issues facing the communities in the five counties which Dove serves.Individuals, families and children in poverty, or whose safety are in jeopardy, need the compassion and love which we have been asked to give our neighbors.

Letter from the Executive Director of Dove, Inc.: Coordinating efforts to address unmet needs and social injustices.

Have you ever been a goat?A head-butting, territorial, grumpy goat?I know that I have, and it’s something that I have to actively work to overcome.How do we avoid those instincts? Matthew 25 instructs us that we should put away those goatish thoughts by giving food to the hungry, drink to the thirsty, welcoming the stranger, clothing the naked, caring for the sick, and visiting the prisoner.

If you or your organization’s members would like to learn more about supporting Dove’s mission, please re…
