July 31, 2012 – Christian Care, a Rock Island non-profit organization committed to
ending homelessness and violence, has been awarded a $1,500 grant from Genesis
Health System. Funds are designated for Christian Care’s Women’s Empowerment
“Christian Care is grateful to Genesis Health System for its support of our services
for women,” said Dr. Elaine Winter, Executive Director. “Most women who have
experienced domestic violence and abuse were subjected to such ordeals early in life.
This grant will go toward helping women to successfully and permanently transform
their lives. We would be unable to provide the services needed to begin the healing
process without the faithful support of donors like Genesis Health System.”
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 us online at christiancareqc.org.
