Rock Island, IL – Christian Care is honored to be awarded a Q2030 grant totaling $1570 from the Community Foundation of the Great River Bend.  The Community Foundation created the Q2030 grants to contribute to the Quad Cities’ vision of being a creative, connected, and globally recognized, prospering community in 2030.  In particular, the grant is designed to ensure our region offers great opportunities for everyone to thrive.

This grant funding will be used by Christian Care to provide training for both CPR and trauma- informed care.  We assume everyone we serve has experienced some degree of trauma related to homelessness.  Training of this nature will better equip us to see the world through their eyes as we administer care to help our residents take steps to thrive in the next phase of their lives.

Since 1916, Christian Care has provided safe shelter, food, clothing and other supportive services to men experiencing homelessness in our community and is the only homeless men’s shelter in the Illinois Quad Cities.  The mission of Christian Care is to empower the homeless to make positive changes in every aspect of their lives.
