QC Housing Advocates Press Conference for National Housing Week of Action

We participated in the 2nd annual Our Homes, Our Voices National Housing Week of Action sponsored by the National Low-Income Housing Coalition. The media event drew representatives from the public schools, health care, civil rights, and partnering organizations in advocating for more housing opportunities for families with extremely low-incomes.  The event also included a memorable chant from a mother who once had no home for her family, "More keys for people like me!
Lunch & Launch Series
In Scott County, IA alone, we need almost 6,700 affordable homes for people living in extremely low income households. 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.

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.

We have work to do! Davenport in 2016 alone, 1,559 Scott County residents became homeless. And recently, Princeton University’s Eviction Lab ranked Davenport the 44th large city in the US with the highest eviction rate per capita. Learn more on our website!
YOU CARE about others
and about making our community better for all.
Housing is a basic.
Every other opportunity rests on a secure place to live.
THANK YOU for caring and making a difference!
