DAVENPORT, IOWA (June 15, 2023) — The public is invited to celebrate the Groundbreaking for Habitat Home N° 135 this Saturday, June 17, 10AM. This short ceremony will be located at 2416 N Nevada Ave, Davenport. Habitat Home N° 135 will be the future home of Kodjo Ahoble, Princia Ahoomey-Zunu, and family.

Long-time Habitat supporters Craig and Nancy Foster have sponsored this home build in memory of Craig’s parents John and Leah Foster. This particular lot is meaningful to them because it is just a few houses down from where John and Leah owned a home and where Craig grew up.

Habitat currently has three home-builds under way in Davenport as well as four home renovations. Habitat plans to break ground on seven additional home-builds in Davenport this year.

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 and more than sixty accessibility ramps.
