MEDFORD, Ore. -- A partnership between the Medford School District and Community Works, a domestic and sexual violence resource center, received $5,000 from the Cow Creek Umpqua Indian Foundation to help kids affected by violence at home.

Project Dove serves more than 100 students in the district. The students receive counseling on a weekly and bi-monthly basis between third and eighth grade.

In the program, students learn life skills they may not learn in a home with severe domestic violence: communication skills, cooperation, respect, expressing emotions, and how to care for things. 

"My goal is to be that one predictable piece in their life," counselor Amy Nangle said.

Nangle has been a counselor with the program for three years and says the community built among the students in the program is vital.

"They feel [they have] this commuinity within the Dove group, which I think is really critical when a child can feel isolated for something that's happening at home that's no fault of their's," Nangle said. "We want them to know we have their back," Nangle said. 

The heads of the programs would like to expand beyond helping eighth graders. 

"The dream is that we can provide services from kindergarten through 12th grade for students especially with our younger students, because that is when we feel we can make a lot of growth," Terri Dahl, supervisor of federal programs for the district, said. 

Funding is a barrier to that. Dahl says that's why this grant and the others they receive are so vital, especially since the program doesn't receive any federal funding.

To donate to the program, mail checks to Community Works at 2594 E. Barnett Road, Suite C, Medford, OR 97504. Be sure to note it's specifically for Project Dove. 

The Cow Creek Umpqua Indian Foundation has awarded more than $14 million in grants to community nonprofits since 1997.
