Rock Island, IL – The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois (RMHC-EIWI), a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating, finding, and supporting programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children, recently awarded Christian Care a grant to help continue its Children’s Advocacy Program.

“Children who arrive with their mothers at our domestic violence shelter have been traumatized by what they have seen and experienced,” said Dr. Elaine Winter, Christian Care’s chief executive officer. “This grant through RMHC-EIWI will allow Christian Care to continue to provide the services that help our children begin to heal and overcome the childhood scars that come with physical, emotional, and mental abuse, and help them feel safe and secure again.”

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
