"As human beings, our job in life is to help people realize how rare and valuable each one of us really is, that each of us has something that no one else has ― or ever will have ― something inside that is unique to all time. It's our job to encourage each other to discover that uniqueness and to provide ways of developing its expression." – Fred Rogers
Today in our area there are people who feel invisible, forgotten, and alone. They live in our neighborhoods, some in homes, some in cars, some staying on a couch, some on the street. They are our brothers, sisters, neighbors, friends, children and parents. Whatever the circumstance, we have a job to do for them. A job to let them know they are seen, remembered, and have a community who cares. A job to encourage them to grow and be whom they were created to be. A job to love. We do that in ways big and small at Dove. Whether it’s simply being the friendly voice on the phone, or organizing support systems to encourage growth towards self-sufficiency and service to one another, love is the common thread that binds all of the programs of Dove. Many hands make light work. You make Dove what it is, and we are glad to be a part of your ministry to the world.
I invite you to get to know our ministries in this community. Then, if you or your organization’s members would like to learn more about supporting Dove’s mission, please reach out to our Volunteer & Community Relations Director, Barb Blakey. Dove, Inc. is only as strong as its member organizations, volunteers, and advocates. It is my sincere hope that you will be a part of making our home a community which values the rare and valuable uniqueness of all of its members.
