DAVENPORT, IOWA (July 14, 2022) — The public is invited to celebrate the Groundbreaking of Habitat Home #127 this Saturday July 16, 10AM. The event will be located at 1920 9th Avenue, Rock Island. Habitat Home #127 will be the future home of life-long Rock Island resident Nancy Trice.
Sponsors for this build include The John Deere Foundation, Russell Construction, Quad City Bank and Trust, and Bank of America. Habitat is grateful for their support and looks forward to collaborating with more donors and hundreds of community volunteers on this project.
This will be Habitat’s 27th home build in the city of Rock Island. Habitat currently has one home build under way in Davenport and plans to start three more home builds in Davenport later this summer. Habitat also hopes to start four home renovations in Davenport later this year.
Habitat’s affordable homeownership program is a long-term solution to the housing crisis. When their home build is finished, Habitat partner families purchase the home from Habitat with affordable monthly payments on a zero-interest mortgage. Habitat partner families must complete a minimum of 250 volunteer hours of sweat equity and attend mandatory homeownership-preparation classes with the support of a volunteer mentor.
Habitat for Humanity Quad Cities is dedicated to building thriving communities. We were founded in 1993 and have since built 125 homes in the Quad Cities. In addition to new home construction, we offer a home repair and wheel-chair ramp program, and facilitate a Neighborhood Revitalization program in Moline's Floreciente Neighborhood.
