Winter Emergency Shelter Final Report
Humility Homes and Services, in partnership with King's Harvest, managed this year's winter emergency shelter in Downtown Davenport. With the financial support of United Way of the Quad Cities, Build to Suit, Downtown Davenport Partnership, Quad Cities Housing Cluster, Quad Cities Community Foundation, and Scott County Community Services, this year's winter shelter was fully staffed and served 386 single adults over the 138 nights. This year's winter was particularly brutal. We want to thank River Bend Transit for providing much needed transportation for several days during the coldest days and nights of the winter.
HHSI is working closely with the Quad Cities Housing Cluster and Scott County Housing Council to gradually reduce the need for the winter emergency shelter by offering services to persons experiencing chronic homelessness and expand affordable housing options throughout the Quad Cities area. Our community goal is to eliminate the need for a QC winter emergency shelter by 2025.
