A homeless shelter and meal site in Rock Island is asking for more than donations of coats, hats, and mittens. Christian Care has started a new program for people who can support it with regular, ongoing financial donations.

The Salvation Army has moved its Family Services office to a new location. Over the summer, the Quad Cities chapter found places for its homeless clients to live. And it closed the downtown Davenport emergency shelter. It's now working to prevent homelessness by helping families stay in their apartments and homes.


After much study and planning, the Salvation Army is going to change how it helps the homeless in the Quad Cities. Monday Army leaders announced instead of operating an emergency homeless shelter, they will help families stay in their apartments and homes.
