In 1990, Humility of Mary Housing, Inc. was founded with the purpose to serve single-parent families.
In 2008, the City of Davenport asked the Congregation of Humility of Mary (CHM) to take over the local emergency homeless shelter that was renamed Humility of Mary Shelter, Inc.
In 2018, Humility of Mary Housing, Inc. and Humility of Mary Shelter, Inc. merged, forming the organization known today as Humility Homes & Services, Inc. (HHSI).
We are dedicated to ending homelessness in the greater Quad Cities. The Jubilee Campus currently houses our supportive and administrative personnel. This location also includes the Corner Closet Donation, a supportive service center dedicated to providing clothing and material goods needed by participants in HHSI’s programs. The Fresh Start Resale Shop is open Monday through Friday, 9 AM - 4 PM, and provides community members the opportunity to shop at a low cost, raising funds, and awareness in the community at large. The Corner Closet provides clothing, and other household essentials to our program participants at no cost and is currently located at the Jubilee Center.
Our emergency shelter, located at 1016 W. 5th Street, houses up to 80 adults year-round and is the only low-barrier shelter in the Quad Cities. In addition to the Emergency Shelter, our organization is also involved in scattered site housing including supportive living programs and Mission-Focused Affordable housing rentals. Some of these federal programs include Permanent Supportive Housing, Rapid Rehousing, and Veterans Services Programs. In 2022, Humility Homes & Services, Inc. added 60 additional housing units totaling 152 units that provide individuals and families the opportunity to transition from homelessness to being stably housed.
Housing is a Human Right. Therefore, we practice radical acceptance. We believe each person deserves a place we call home. We welcome single adults and families at all stages of their journey.
