Just the Facts!

The 2017 Coats for Kids drive is in full swing and we will be collecting good, used coats for families in need through November 30.  Participating Cleaners will make sure the coats are clean and fresh and ready for the clothing rooms to distribute.   Please  think of the good you can do, by clearing out those closets OR by doing a bit of shopping for those hard to get sizes (about 2nd -6th graders.)

Summer Hours Set for MAX

MAX, Macon County Assistance eXchange, is a joint effort to provide a centralized location to provide monetary support to persons in the community who have a verified emergency need. MAX provides a systematic way to verify their needs and respond in a timely manner to those needs.Financial support is from area congregations, individuals and foundations. MAX also works with AMEREN IP to distribute funding through the Warm Neighbors Cool Friends Program, which assists persons with payment of their power bills, in Macon and DeWitt Counties.
Most people seeking help are sent to MAX from the 211 program, social service agencies and area congregations with anticipation of helping clients. Others seeking assistance have learned about the program from family, friends and public/social media. MAX Volunteers work with those seeking assistance, helping them fill out an application for assistance.The client then meets with the Coordinator to review the need.The application is reviewed and verified, …

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.
That is one reason I am excited to remain involved in Decatur’s City Revitalization process, and excited to welcome Community Engagement Coordinator, Sattin Schreiner, to our Dove family.

Our rural counties have been blessed by neighbors banding together to provide food, safety, clothing, and neighborly love to one another.In shor…

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

Dear Friends,
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.
This December as we prepare for the celebration of the coming of our Lord, past and again, let us each look for ways to take care of the least of those amongst us.Support Dove, Inc. as we look to the future with volunteer services including Coats 4 Kids being distributed and Christmas Basket deliveries, service to our community through RSVP, BABES, MAX/DAX, and the Children’s Clothing Room, as well as our programs to shelter those touched by domestic violence and house the homeless.
If you or your organization’s members would like to learn more about supporting Dove’s mission, please re…
