The Hubbell-Waterman Foundation supports the hungry and hurting

Rock Island, IL – The Hubbell-Waterman Foundation Board of Trustees has awarded a $10,000 grant to financially assist Christian Care feed the homeless and hungry.

"We couldn't possibly be able to fulfill our mission without generous supporters like The Hubbell-Waterman Foundation," said Executive Director Elaine Winter, Ed.D. "This grant will go a long way toward not only providing food, shelter and services for the hundreds of men, women and children who will come through our doors this year, but also will help us provide sustained help in the form of counseling, case management, advocacy and spiritual guidance."

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 6:30 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.
