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.


Tracy Davis

New COVE, Executive Director

Dear COVE Friends,
Iím so pleased to have the opportunity to be chosen as the new Executive Director for COVE and to lead the organization on its
next exciting phase.

Twenty-four years ago I left my position as the Executive Director of
CHOICES of Manistee County (Manisteeís Domestic Violence
Assistance Program) and the community I continued my career
serving people in need as Special Olympics Michiganís Vice
President. After almost fourteen years leading Special Olympics
Michigan public relations, marketing and development efforts
annually raising $7.5 million, I moved to St. Louis, Missouri to
become the Executive Director of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
in Missouri. I joined Special Olympics once again as the
Regional Development Director for Special Olympics Missouri.
Now, returning to Ludington, the area I grew up in and working
with victims of domestic violence and sexual assault feels like
Iíve come full circle.

What I didnít expect to find upon my return was such a
passionate group of people and community members that
support COVE. I was amazed by the state of the art new facility
and enormous community dedication to COVE and its mission.
I am honored to work alongside board, volunteers and staff as
we look to the future and our exciting new efforts. We are all
committed to enhancing and engaging our community
partnerships and providing quality and expanded services. Our
Sexual Assault Nurses Examining (SANE) Unit will hopefully be
fully operational January, 2017. Currently adult sexual assault
victims are sent to Muskegon for testing and children are sent
to Grand Rapids. We will be able to perform the exams right
here in our unit instead of sending victims out of town at the
time of crisis. In the coming months, we will also be embarking
on our new Strategic Plan to set a road map for our future.
To those of you who I have already met, thank you for being so
welcoming. If I havenít had the chance to meet you yet Iím
eager to do so. I am looking forward to the exciting
opportunities ahead of COVE and deeply admire everyone
involved in the organization.

Warmest Regards,

Tracy Davis

COVE, Executive Director
