Rock Island, IL – The Mary Iva Gittens Knouse Charitable Trust has awarded a $1,000 grant to lend financial aid to Christian Care’s Children’s Advocacy Program. “Christian Care greatly appreciates the Mary Iva Gittens Knouse Charitable Trust for its continued support of our services, especially for children,” said Dr. Elaine Winter, the organization’s executive director. “Our Children’s Advocacy Program addresses the emotional and psychosocial needs of children—our silent victims—who are in need of therapeutic services. This grant from the Mary Iva Gittens Knouse Charitable Trust allows us to deliver life-changing mental and emotional recovery support for both residential and non-residential children. For this we are very grateful.”

Christian Care is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization operating two facilities—a domestic violence shelter for women and children and a rescue mission for homeless men. It serves homeless individuals, victims of domestic violence, veterans, men and women coming out of prison, and those with mental illnesses.
