Rock Island, IL – The Scott County Regional Authority has awarded Christian Care a grant to accommodate more homeless individuals at its community meal site, located at 2209 3rd Avenue in Rock Island, and to purchase a new gas range for its domestic violence shelter. “Christian Care is always looking for ways to improve our facilities and better care for the people we serve,” said executive director Elaine Winter, Ed.D. “Thanks to the Scott County Regional Authority, Christian Care will add more seating for individuals who come to us for meals, and we will purchase a much-needed gas range so women can safely prepare meals at our domestic violence shelter. We greatly thank the SCRA for helping us to realize our mission: By providing safe shelter, support and resources, Christian Care empowers both the homeless and survivors of domestic violence to make positive changes in every aspect of their lives.”

Christian Care is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization operating two facilities—a domestic violence shelter for abused 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.

Its community meal site 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.

Anyone in need is encouraged to call Christian Care’s crisis hotline any hour of the day at (309) 788-2273 or visit online at christiancareqc.org.
