Local Domestic Violence Shelter Receives Funding
Rock Island, IL – The Melvin McKay Trust has awarded a grant to financially assist Christian Care’s Children’s Advocacy Program. “We are very appreciative of this support,” said Dr. Elaine Winter, the organization’s executive director. “Our Children’s Advocacy Program is one of our core services, and is vital in facilitating the psychological and emotional healing of our young residents—the silent victims. The future of many of these children will be greatly enhanced because of the Melvin McKay Charitable Trust.”
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 illness.
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 6:00 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.
