What is Rapid Re-Housing?
Humility of Mary offers a Rapid Rehousing program for folks experiencing homelessness who need limited financial support and some help to find housing of their choice. This strategy is used across the country. It reduces the length of stays in shelters and keeps people stably housed.
Gently used, clean and in working order, furniture and household items, along with gently used and clean clothing are valuable to us. Even tools and garden items are accepted! We accept donations Monday through Friday, 8am to 4pm at 3805 MIssissippi Ave., Davenport. Thank you!
