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 to 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!

Understanding Suicide: ASAP
Help is here for people who have contemplated or attempted suicide, for those coping with the suicide of the loved one, and those concerned about a loved one.
Christian Care now offers a support group called Understanding Suicide: ASAP (Awareness, Support, Action, Prevention). The group’s mission is to serve individuals who have contemplated or attempted suicide and for those coping with the suicide of a loved one by providing education, resources, support, and an opportunity to share and process thoughts and feelings related to suicide.
The Understanding Suicide group meets the first and third Wednesday of each month from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. at our Rescue Mission, located at 2209 3rd Ave. in Rock Island. Although a mental health professional will facilitate the group, this is not a therapy group.
The group's goal is to provide education, resources, support and an opportunity to share and process thoughts and feelings related to suicide. Participants will be able to share experiences related to suicide, learn suicide's warning signs, understand the process for helping at-risk individuals, and provide information and knowledge about preventing suicide. For more information about this group, call Lindsey Probizanski at 309-786-5734.
