Humility of Mary Housing, Inc. is starting its 25th year of hosting one of the largest indoor “garage sales” in the area to benefit single parents and their children in a program that takes them from homelessness to hopefulness. The spring semi-annual benefit sale will be Friday and Saturday, May 16 and 17, from 8 am to 4 pm at 3805 Mississippi Avenue, the office and donation center for Humility of Mary Housing.

It is getting to be time for spring cleaning or, maybe down-sizing, and we are willing to accept donations of all those clean, gently used items in good working order that you are wanting to move on and out. Donations can be dropped off at 3805 Mississippi Avenue, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., through May 9.

Humility of Mary Housing serves 47 single parent families and approximately 100 children. The length of stay in the program varies but last year it was 15 months.

In this program children learn there is a different way to live. Parents have said they not only get a roof over their heads but they are given the opportunities to build a foundation under their feet to provide for a better future.

Parents and children who have benefitted from this program have become employees in many Quad City businesses, have purchased homes; they have moved from homelessness to a life of hopefulness.
