Rock Island, IL – The Moline Foundation recently awarded a $2,500 grant to Christian Care to help fund their 24-hour crisis hotline. “Part of our mission is to provide support and resources,” said Dr. Elaine Winter, the organization’s chief executive officer. “And one of the most effective ways to fulfill our mission every day is through our 24-hour crisis hotline, where we will receive over 1,000 phone calls this year from individuals who need safe shelter, food, and other community resources. We’re grateful that the Moline Foundation is once again providing funds for this much-needed service.”

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 christiancareqc.org.
