Rock Island, IL – The Rock Island Rotary Club awarded a $500 grant to help Christian Care provide therapeutic services to children who arrive at its Domestic Violence Shelter with their mothers. “All children who have seen and experienced domestic violence in the home can benefit from professional counseling,” said Christian Care’s CEO, Dr. Elaine Winter. “With our Awakening Children to Empowerment (ACE) Program, children over the age of two receive the mental and emotional support, the nurturing, and the affirming validation they need to heal from the effects of domestic violence. We thank the Rock Island Rotary for its gift; not only are we working together to help these families in need, but to help their future families, as well.”

Christian Care is transforming the lives of homeless individuals, victims of domestic violence, veterans, men and women coming out of prison, and those with mental illness. Its two facilities—a domestic violence shelter for abused women and children and a rescue mission for homeless men—provide safe shelter, nutritious meals, clothing, counseling, referrals and guidance to those in need. Christian Care’s services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week with the goal of nourishing the bodies, minds, hearts and souls of the men, women and children who come seeking a new way of life.
