King’s Harvest Ministries is a non-profit 501c(3) charitable organization. Our mission is to serve the poor and homeless in the Quad Cities. We offer the following services to our less fortunate: hot meals, shelters, groceries, pet assistance and various other emergency needs.
Due to a huge need in the Quad City community, King’s Harvest will be opening on May 1st 2013 two new shelters that will be open year round for single men and single women. This past winter King’s Harvest had 327 people staying at their Winter Overflow Shelter and upon closing this spring there were 55 people who were still in desperate need for shelter. The single men and women’s shelter will be located in the King’s Harvest building at 824 West 3rd Street in Downtown Davenport. Our Shelter for Homeless Mothers with Children will also be open year round. These new shelters will have programs that require the homeless to work on life style changes in order to stay in the shelter.
King’s Harvest will host an Open House to allow the community to view these new shelters from 7:00-8:00 pm on Tuesday April 30th. Please come to the small door at the front of King’s Harvest at 824 West 3rd Street in Downtown Davenport.
We are also in need of volunteers and monetary donations for this new endeavor. We will be needing volunteers to help with nightly check-ins, once a week over nights, snacks and help with the Love Your Neighbor Program which is where we connect you with someone who is in need. If you are interested in volunteering please call King’s Harvest at 563-570-4536. If you would like to make a donation to King’s Harvest please visit www.kingsharvest.net to use credit cards or mail checks to King’s Harvest Ministries at 5837 Wisconsin Ave. Davenport, IA 52806.
