DAVENPORT, IOWA (July 28, 2022) — The public is invited to celebrate the Groundbreaking of Habitat Homes N° 128, N° 129, and N° 130 this Saturday, July 30, 10AM. The event will be located at 651 East 6th Street, Davenport. Habitat Homes N° 128, N° 129, and N° 130 will be the future homes of Sarah Ross, Balkiss Fousseni and Abdounazirou Adamou, Ayi Amavi and Vidjinnagni Tossou, and their families.
Sponsors for these builds include City of Davenport Home Funds, Quad Cities Housing Council, Scott County Regional Authority, Wells Fargo, Arconic, St Paul Lutheran Church, and In Memory of Jacquelyn S Rambo.
These projects are three of five new Habitat home builds starting this year. In addition, Habitat plans to start four home renovations this fall.
The Habitat 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 homeownership-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. We have built 125 homes in the Quad Cities since we were founded in 1993. 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.
