DAVENPORT, IOWA (May 16, 2023) — The public is welcome to attend an open-house anniversary party for Habitat for Humanity Quad Cities, which will be held on Thursday, May 18, 4-7PM, at St Paul Lutheran Church, 2136 N Brady St, Davenport. Habitat is celebrating thirty years of building strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter. Habitat is also celebrating twenty years of ReStore and ten years of Health and Home, the resale stores that support the work of Habitat for Humanity Quad Cities.

For thirty years, the local Habitat for Humanity affiliate has served low-income families with the construction of affordable homes. Habitat will dedicate nine homes this year, totaling 134 affordable homes since 1993. In addition, Habitat has completed over seventy home repairs, more than sixty accessibility ramps, and seven years revitalizing the Floreciente neighborhood of Moline in partnership with residents and stakeholders. Habitat will be announcing their next neighborhood project later this summer.

Habitat’s Executive Director Tom Fisher-King states, “We are very grateful to share these milestone anniversaries with our generous Quad City community. Our founders, city partners, thousands of volunteers, donors, sponsors, and employees share in the success of the past thirty years and will help to keep Habitat building thriving communities for the next thirty years and beyond.”

Habitat relies on the community for support. You can help the non-profit organization by volunteering, donating, or shopping at ReStore and Health and Home. Find more information at habitatqc.org.
