You may never know the person standing next to you in the elevator, who smiles as you rush past into the store, sits behind you in church, is hungry.
Struggling to feed his or her family. Wondering where to go for a hot meal.
You may never know the mother whose child sits in class next to yours chose to be homeless rather than live with an abuser.
Churches United of the Quad City Area knows these neighbors in need.
Our 24 food pantries help fill home cupboards with free food. Three free hot meal sites serve dinner to guests six nights every week.
Winnie's Place, the only emergency shelter in the Illinois Quad Cities for homeless women and children who may have survived domestic violence, provides a safe place to stay, meals, clothing, and support services to help clients find housing, employment, and build a new life.
A gift to Churches United enriches the lives of people you may never know.
Or maybe you do.
