DAVENPORT, IOWA (June 9, 2023) — Habitat for Humanity Quad Cities invites the public to celebrate the dedication of Habitat homes N° 126 and N° 127 this Saturday, June 10, 2023. The first celebration will be for home N° 126 located at 813 East 6th Street, Davenport. This celebration will begin at 10AM. Homeowner Armando Aguilar is looking forward to having enough space for himself and his two teenage children. The single sponsor for this build is long-time Habitat volunteer Pat Grimm.

The second celebration will be for home N° 127 at 1920 9th Avenue, Rock Island. This celebration will begin at 12PM. Homeowner Nancy Trice has lived in Rock Island her whole life and looks forward to having her own yard where her grandchildren can come over to play. The sponsors for this build are John Deere Foundation, Quad City Bank and Trust, Russell Construction, and Bank of America.

Habitat congratulates the two new homeowners on their successful completion of the homeownership program. Habitat thanks the home build sponsors, not only for their generous financial contributions, but also for their countless volunteer hours.

Habitat’s homeownership program is a long-term solution to the affordable housing crisis. Habitat partner families must complete a minimum of 250 volunteer hours of sweat-equity and attend mandatory home-ownership-preparation classes with the support of a volunteer mentor. When their home build is finished, partner families purchase the home from Habitat with affordable monthly payments on a zero-interest mortgage.


Habitat for Humanity Quad Cities is dedicated to building thriving communities. 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 recently finished a seven-year neighborhood revitalization project in the Floreciente neighborhood of Moline.
