Humility of Mary Housing, Inc. is celebrating 21 years of service to the Quad Cities with a Jazz Brunch at Crow Valley Golf Club on Sunday, September 29, 2013, from 11am to 2pm.  Sarah Marie Young, a Chicago vocalist, will once again be the featured entertainer and she will be accompanied by a pianist and a string bass player.  To learn more about this fabulous singer with a unique voice, check out her website at www.sarahmarieyoung.

Last year we began auctioning lunches with prominent residents of the Quad Cities and the winners had a great time.  The following people have made these offers for our auction this year:

Paula Sands, KWQC personality and reporter, has graciously agreed to host a lunch for six.

David Heller, President and Owner of the River Bandits, has donated a 16 seat suite for baseball game in the 2014 season AND 10 tickets for a ride on the Ferris wheel.

Kim Findley, Putnam Museum President and Chief Executive Officer, has kindly offered to host a breakfast for six at the Putnam Museum with a private tour of the “DIANA a celebration” exhibit.  This offering will need to be arranged before January 5, 2014.

Humility of Mary Housing, Inc. (HMHI) has provided supportive housing for 742 single parents and their 1463 children during these past 23 years.  These families were homeless at the time they entered the program.  HMHI provides single parents with the tools and support to complete degrees, find jobs and move into their own homes.  Children learn there is a different way to live; some have become the first in their family to complete high school and go on to college.  The need is great, with nearly 400 applications a year; however, HMHI has space and staff to provide services to only 47 of these families at any one time.

Please join us in our celebration and support this valuable community asset.
