Welcome to Christian Care

Christian Care's services are available in the Quad Cities to a growing number of homeless men and abused women and children 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Through our two facilities—a domestic violence shelter for abused women and children and a rescue mission for homeless men—we provide safe shelter, food, clothing, counseling, referrals and guidance to anyone in need. We serve homeless individuals, victims of domestic violence, veterans, men and women coming out of prison, and the mentally ill.

Every day of every year, Christian Care provides warm, safe shelter, nutritious meals, and a wide variety of resources to needy men, women and children throughout the Quad Cities. Our vision is to transform the lives of those we serve, offering the homeless and survivors of domestic violence an opportunity to start a new, more productive life.

Thank you for considering a gift to Christian Care, and many blessings to you and your loved ones this year!

Verizon Offers Hope - Donate Your No-longer Used Phone

hope  lineVerizon is committed to helping the nearly one in four women, one in seven men and the three to ten million children in the United States affected by domestic violence. Christian Care benefits from Hopeline from Verizon by collecting no-longer-used wireless phones and turning them into support for domestic violence survivors. Through HopeLine, Christian Care exchanges the donated, gently used phones and the phones are then reprogrammed as emergency phones that they give back to Christian Care Domestic Violence Shelter's residents. Phone donations can be made to the Rescue Mission located at 2209 3rd avenue downtown Rock Island.
