Online Staff Report
Shelter Care Ministries’ Annual Spring Luncheon will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Thursday, May 10, at the Tebala Shrine Temple, 7910 Newburg Road, Rockford. Tickets are $35 per person.

Shelter Care Ministries was established in 1984, by Emmanuel Episcopal Church, as a response to the needs of a growing homeless population. The programs have expanded since then to include Jubilee Center, a daytime drop-in center serving individuals with chronic mental illness, emergency/transitional or permanent supportive housing programs for families that are homeless and a drop-in day center (MAYA’s House) for homeless children whose families are moving from homeless to housing. For more information about the programs or to volunteer, contact Judy Johnson at (815) 964-5520 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
