Please join us in a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony, Tuesday, November 1, 1:30 p.m. at the Domestic Violence Shelter, 302 S. Union, Decatur to dedicate the updates to the Shelter.
Archer Daniels Midland Company recently donated $7,500 to Dove, Inc. The donation has gone toward updates to the Domestic Violence Shelter, Decatur. These funds, coming to us to make needed improvements, is a perfect highlight to National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, held each October.
Lowe’s in Forsyth combined the generous donation of the ADM Cares Grant, funding from Lowe’s, the generosity of many of their vendors and the amazing talents of their staff to do updates to the areas of the shelter most used, by the clients and their children seeking services of the Domestic Violence Program.
In its 46th year, Dove is committed to helping people meet their social and personal needs. More than 60 religious organizations in Decatur and Central Illinois jointly sponsor Dove. Dove offers the BABES (Beginning Awareness Basic Education Studies), Domestic Violence, MAX (Macon County Assistance eXchange) and the Retired and Senior Volunteer (RSVP) programs. In collaboration with other agencies, Dove administers the Homeward Bound and the DeWitt Assistance eXchange (DAX) programs; and sponsors coat and Christmas basket drives. Volunteers and supporters make this social service agency a strong partner in meeting needs of those living in central Illinois.
