RDA Grant Supports Emergency Shelter
Churches United gratefully acknowledges the generous $15,000 grant award from the Regional Development Authority. These funds assist our efforts to provide temporary shelter and a safe environment for homeless women and children at Winnie's Place, the only emergency shelter in the Illinois Quad Cities for survivors of domestic violence.
Shelter staff and volunteers advise and guide clients through job seeking and placement, budgeting, self-care and long term life skills improvement to help remove the barriers and break dependency cycles that may keep them and their children from living more stable and productive lives.
Our Board of Directors, staff, and volunteers thank the RDA for funding our unique and vitally needed Shelter Ministry.
