Welcome to COVE!

COVE empowers women and changes lives in Mason, Lake and Oceana Counties. Volunteers are always needed, goods, donations and all monies raised stay right here in rural Michigan. Make a difference today for the children of tomorrow. When the power of love overcomes the love of power, there will be peace.

The mission of COVE is to provide protection and advocacy to victims of Domestic / Sexual Violence and or Homelessness, and to educate the community about the root causes of violence.

April is:

"Till It Happens to You” was sung by Lady Gaga at the Oscars this year. Fifty sexual assault survivors were present with messages written on their arms, "Not Your Fault” and "It Happened to Me.” Vice President Joe Biden asked everyone to take a pledge that says "I will intervene in situations when consent has not or cannot be given. Let’s change the culture. We must change the culture so that no woman or man will ever feel they have to ask themselves, ‘What did I do?’ They did nothing wrong.”
Sexual assault effects can be psychological, emotional, and/or physical, and they may be brief in duration or last a very long time. While there is not one "normal" reaction to sexual assault, here are some of the more common effects that sexual assault victims may experience.
Depression • Eating Disorder • PTSD • Self Harm
Sleep Disturbances • Substance Abuse • Suicide

During the month of April COVE and the Ludington and Shelby Libraries will participate in Pinwheels for Prevention.on. On April 14th
pinwheels will be displayed on the lawns of the Libraries. Children can come from 4-5 pm to create their own pinwheels. The Pinwheels are a visual reminder that all children deserve great childhoods because our children are our future.
