July 7th, 2020- Dove Inc. Is celebrating 50 years. The organization is a coalition of religious organizations, volunteers, and advocates seeking to coordinate efforts to address unmet human needs in our community. What started as a mission to serve the poor and create educational opportunities for volunteers in the 1970’s has grown to offer a Domestic Violence Program, assistance for the homeless, financial assistance, and more says executive Director Tamara Wilcox. The theme for the anniversary year is “needed then, vital now” and the organization announced a new program called The Senior Companion Program. The program, which is an offshoot of the RSVP program, utilizes senior volunteers to assist other seniors who are homebound.
