#18 of 45 things we want you to know about Dove
Patty Plato, the current employee who has been with Dove the longest, shared that one of the first programs with Dove was going out into the parks and neighborhoods and doing activities for youth. Somewhere about 1988 it was restructured into Community Services / Decatur Area Project. Like everything that has been around that long, that program has evolved. The states area projects have been funded mostly by contracts from the State of Illinois and are in limbo right now until a budget is in place. Unfortunately, our local program is currently suspended with the greatest hopes it will be back soon.
