Rock Island, IL – Christian Care recently received a $1,000 grant that will go toward helping homeless men and abused women pay for medical co-pays and prescriptions. Having this grant will mean a greater sense of security and peace of mind for its clients, knowing they do not have to sacrifice their health because of an inability to pay.

“We are especially grateful to In From the Cold because, even though the Affordable Healthcare Act expands Medicaid eligibility, homeless individuals will still need funds to pay for their health and prescription co-pays until their Medicaid application is approved,” said Christian Care’s Executive Director, Dr. Elaine Winter. “In From the Cold of the Quad Cities is helping us to provide as many resources as possible for homeless men and abused women, so that they are not tempted to return to their old ways of life, including abuse, just to obtain minimal, but much-needed services.”

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.

Christian Care's 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. If you know of someone in need, call Christian Care's crisis hotline any hour of the day at (309) 788-2273 or visit online at
