Habitat History

Habitat for Humanity Quad Cities is a local bi-state affiliate of an international, ecumenical, Christian, non-profit corporation that builds simple, decent, affordable houses for and in partnership with families in need who then purchase the homes from HFHQC on a no-interest mortgage. The Quad Cities affiliate was organized in 1993 by a group of Quad Citians who traveled to Homestead, Florida to assist with home building efforts after Hurricane Andrew. Since that time, HFHQC has built 91 homes (as of September, 2015. Check with the office at 563-359-9066 for latest numbers).

Each home, generously subsidized by donated and/or discounted building supplies, materials and skilled labor and utilizing much volunteer labor currently costs over $100,000. These funds and volunteers come from churches, individuals, foundations, corporations, businesses and other community groups. HFHQC activities are governed by a local, elected volunteer Board of Directors which work through volunteer committees with coordination by the Executive Director.
