Letter from the Executive Director of Dove, Inc.: Coordinating efforts to address unmet needs and social injustices.
We live in an amazing community. Hope for a brighter future, generosity of spirit, faith in God, and a will to make lemonade from lemons is the trademark of our home here in Central Illinois. In the past roller coaster of a month, Dove has continued its mission despite the odds and we have come through it strong.
To say that I am proud of our staff, clients, and this community which supports them, would be an understatement. Thanks to all of you we have reached a point of stability, and are able to plan for a bright future. We are hiring to fill vacancies and planning to continue to provide services for domestic violence victims, homeless individuals, and community needs. We have partnered with volunteers from NWRAPS to become the new host of the annual Heritage & Holly Tour, and worked with our partners in the community to continue our mission to coordinate efforts to meet unmet needs.
Thank you for being ready to share in Dove’s work. To explore how you can grow with us towards the future, please reach out to our Volunteer & Community Relations Director, Barb Blakey. Dove, Inc. is only as strong as its member organizations, volunteers, and advocates. Thank you for working to make our home self-sustaining community with hope for anyone who is suffering.
