Which of these men is homeless?


Steve Gottcent Steve Gottcent joined the Christian Care team in February 2018 as our Community Outreach Coordinator.  His primary goal is to connect with local churches, social support agencies, and other organizations to help get the word out about Christian Care. His role also includes volunteer management, marketing, and communications.

Steve loves that Christian Care is trying to take an active role to solve homelessness, not just put a band-aid on it.  “We don’t just kick people out after 1 night or 1 month, regardless of where they’re at in their lives,” Steve says, “but strive to ensure men leave with hope found in God, a job, and a home.”

If you’d like to have someone talk to your organization about Christian Care’s mission and vision, and about homelessness in the Quad Cities- or if you’d like to come take a tour of our facility- Steve would love to help.  Contact him at
