Eleanor is seven. Thanks to you, Eleanor learned in Sunday school that she is surrounded by a Circle of Grace. When Mr. James wanted her to sit on his lap and Eleanor didn’t like the idea, she remembered what she learned and said “no thanks” and told her parents.
Thank you for safeguarding children like Eleanor in your communities. Your generous support of Dove’s Nest helps kids stay safe and teaches grown-ups about healthy boundaries and ways to strengthen families.

Participants Want You to Know:
Dove’s Nest is dedicated to prevention as well as helping faith communities respond appropriately when a child has been hurt by abuse. This year, we consulted with 12 faith communities. Although vastly different, the situations involved careful listening, reminders on how to be victim-centered, and empowering communities to move forward, preventing further harm. This is what we heard:
- A Dove’s Nest speaker came to our church and trained 60 people. Unfortunately, we had a child abuse case shortly after the presentation. We used the information she had presented to us to help us through the difficult case.
- An incident in our community highlighted our need for more education about abuse prevention. Through Dove’s Nest, we were able to bring in an outside expert to do some educational events sooner rather than later.
