To move this conversation forward, the Shelter and Transitional Housing Council of the Quad Cities (to which we belong) is bringing local stakeholders together for a series of lunch discussions. Read more about this program--this local situation---and how YOU can get involved HERE ON OUR WEBSITE.

HUMILITY OF MARY HOSTS BIG TABLE
On April 20, Humility of Mary hosted one of the more than 500 discussion groups in the Quad Cities Big Table forum. Folks of different backgrounds, neighborhoods and interest groups imagined possibilities for the future of our region. These conversations will inspire new ways we can work together to make our area stronger and more connected. You know we want that future to include affordable housing for all!
DID you know that 50 years ago the Fair Housing Act became law? Davenport noted this with a symposium hosting a top author of 2017. Our administrators and staff attended and networked with city officials.
