In July, 2018 Humility of Mary Housing, Inc. and Humility of Mary Shelter, Inc. merged to become Humility Homes and Services, Inc. With nearly 40 years of combined service, Humility Homes and Services promises to be a leading resource in ending homelessness in the greater Quad Cities area.
Humility Homes and Services, Inc. owns 18 properties in Davenport, IA which includes 41 apartments, our 70 bed, emergency shelter for single adults including Veterans, and the 10,000 square foot Fresh Start Donation Center. We lease an additional 52 apartments. On any given day, 250-300 adults and children are participating in our housing services.
Humility is “that habitual quality whereby we live in the truth of things - - the truth that in our littleness we have been given extravagant dignity”. Because we have been given dignity, humility means saying “yes” to the human condition. We believe homelessness is a systemic social injustice --- a reversible circumstance and not a personal characteristic.
