(Davenport, IA) -- Humility Homes & Services along with the Quad Cities Housing Council are set to open a winter emergency shelter.
The shelter aims aid people experiencing homelessness in the area and will open December first. HHSI remodeled its shelter basement, increasing capacity by 70% for additional beds needed during the winter months.
“We anticipate an increase in the demand due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Everyone deserves to have a safe, warm bed during the coldest months of the year. We saw that need and decided to act proactively by remodeling our basement and converting our offices into additional space for the seasonal shelter.” Christie Adamson, assistant director of Humility Homes & Services, Inc., told KWQC 6.
