The public is invited to help Humility of Mary Housing celebrate the opening and relocation of its program services and donation center from 1228 East 12th Street to 3805 Mississippi Avenue in Davenport IA. A Ribbon Cutting ceremony will be held at the new location on Thursday, November 3 at 3 pm followed by an open house until 6 pm.

Humility of Mary Housing, Inc. is a transitional and permanent supportive housing program for single parent families who have experienced homelessness. It is a structured program that provides opportunities for growth and development for the family while parents work on education and/or job training goals in order to become self-sufficient. The new location provides the much needed space for additional offices for the housing program staff, expanded food pantry and donation area where families can pick out items they need to furnish their apartments. The space is very welcoming and child friendly for families who have been dealing with the trauma of homelessness. The administrative offices for Humility of Mary Housing and for Humility of Mary Shelter will also be located in this building.

Humility of Mary Housing has been providing their supportive program services for 21 years but could not do it without the support of its many generous donors. The Quad City community is very caring and generous and Humility of Mary Housing looks forward to a long partnership with this community in providing support and hope for better futures to some of the most vulnerable in our community.
