The Junior Board of Rock Island Supports Children’s Program

Rock Island, IL – The Junior Board of Rock Island has awarded a $1,000 grant to lend financial support to Christian Care’s Children’s Advocacy Program. “We are thankful that the Junior Board of Rock Island has made it possible for Christian Care to provide therapeutic services for children,” said Dr. Elaine Winter, the organization’s executive director. “Children who come to our domestic violent shelter with their mothers need our help if they are to grow up to be happy and healthy with prospects for a bright future ahead. We are very grateful that the Junior Board of Rock Island shares our vision to help the 50 or more children who will reside at Christian Care this year.”

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.

For all those who need a meal, Christian Care's Community Meal Site is located at its Rescue Mission, 2209 3rd Avenue, Rock Island. It is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner on weekdays Monday through Friday, and for breakfast and dinner on Saturday and Sunday. Breakfast is served at 6:30 a.m., lunch at 12:15 p.m., and dinner at 6:30 p.m. If you know of someone in need, call the Christian Care Crisis Hotline any hour of the day at (309) 788-2273 or visit online at
