27th Annual Coats for Kids!

2018 Coats for Kids drive has begun and we will be collecting new and 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. (All addresses Decatur unless noted otherwise.)
 
WAND and Dove have teamed up each year to collect the coats!  The clean or new coats are taken to participating clothing rooms for families to choose. 
 
Donate and make it a warmer winter for everyone!

Why?

“Why do they stay in that relationship?”“What is wrong with them?!?”“Do they like it??!!”“You would think they would leave if they didn’t like it!!”“Why would someone stay with a person who constantly puts them down, calls them names, hurts them over and over physically, emotionally and even sexually?”
Sound familiar??There is no easy answer to these questions.Sadly, these are thoughts and questions that some have about domestic violence victims.How wrong they are in their way of thinking!!I can guarantee we will never meet the victim who tells us they “liked it”!!

Kudos to our Volunteers!

Dove is blessed to have many Volunteers join us in our programs and the work we do.  We would like to take a moment to highlight a few of our amazing volunteers within the Domestic Violence Program, and some of the milestones that were reached in November, 2018.
