Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our partner families are the working poor, earning between 30% and 70% of the median annual income. The Fair Market Rent in the Quad Cities is now at $758 and $959 for two and three-bedrooms, respectively. Many renters must also pay for utilities in addition to rent. Facing unaffordable rent and unable to qualify for a traditional mortgage because of their financial standing, low income families cannot provide for themselves. Choices are made between paying rent or buying food, clothing, and transportation. It's hard to understand how they survive. Unaffordable housing is just one piece. There are also families who live in unsafe housing in deplorable conditions. Many live with the situations in fear of being evicted if they complain. Imagine huddled around a space heater with your children in the cold of winter because the furnace is not working and the landlord refuses fix it.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

New Home Construction

New Home Construction builds a simple, affordable home for a family in need in Scott County, Iowa or Rock Island County, Illinois. In order to help eliminate poverty housing, Habitat builds new homes for low income, working families. Our Partner Families purchase these homes with a zero-interest mortgage where payments are capped at 30% of the families’ income level.

Habitat for Humanity is truly a hand up, not a hand out. Habitat helps prepare families for success as we require classes in budgeting, home maintenance, credit, and conflict resolution. Our program can actually break the cycle of poverty, which can change the lives of a partner family and their children, forever. A Habitat for Humanity home gives our Partner Families strength, stability, and self-reliance, which allows them to break the cycle of poverty.

Population(s) Served
Families

Habitat for Humanity Quad Cities adopted the Floreciente Neighborhood in Moline, IL in February 2015 as part of a new Neighborhood Revitalization program. With more than 8 New Habitat Homes in the neighborhood, this project was launched to see the impact of building up the entire neighborhood not just an individual home. This program brings together neighbors, community organizations, churches, businesses, and local governments for a collaborative approach to neighborhood re-development. Projects completed thus far include; concrete work, façade repairs, handicap accessibility improvements, interior improvements, new roofs, and much more. In addition to improvements, monthly Healthy Home Workshops are also available to provide Floreciente residents with helpful information on staying safe and healthy in their homes.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

A Habitat for Humanity home provides more than safe and secure shelter for families. It provides stability and security for children, which has shown to improve their social, mental, physical, and emotional health, as well as academic performance.

As properties are put back on the tax roll, neighborhoods can become revitalized. In the calendar year 2020, Habitat families paid over $168,000 in property taxes in the Quad Cities. Since our founding in 1993, Habitat families have put more than $1.4 million back into our local economy.

Home ownership also provides opportunities for wealth acquisition. Escaping poverty can be an insurmountable task when faced alone. Many families have become reliant on services at the federal, state and community level, such as food banks, community health centers, and child care assistance. When families have affordable, adequate housing and have learned the skills necessary to maintain that home, they can afford the other necessities of life. Homeownership offers our families safety, security and empowers them towards self-reliance.

Habitat for Humanity is truly a hand up, not a hand out. Habitat helps prepare families for success as we require classes in budgeting, home maintenance, credit, and conflict resolution. Our program can actually break the cycle of poverty, which can change the lives of a partner family and their children, forever.

In order to help eliminate poverty housing, Habitat builds homes for low income, working Quad City families. Families purchase these homes with a zero-interest mortgage. The family will also be required to work a minimum of 250 sweat equity hours for each adult member of the household. The Partner Families work closely with a volunteer mentor throughout the whole building process. Additionally, Partner Families attend classes that are relevant to homeownership with topics such as; budgeting, home maintenance, and conflict resolution.

In 2015 HFHQC began a Neighborhood Revitalization program that focused in an underserved Hispanic neighborhood in Moline, IL. This program assists residents in home repairs, neighborhood clean-ups and community workshops.

In 2019, HFHQC began a home repair program in addition to a wheel chair ramp program. These programs help residents throughout our community maintain a safe and healthy home.

More than 3,000 community members volunteer with Habitat each year. Hundreds of volunteers will work together to construct this home with oversight from the Habitat Construction Director and volunteer construction supervisors. In addition, businesses, foundations, and faith communities are contributing dollars to help fund the construction of this home.

Since our founding in 1993 we have completed construction on over 125 homes in the Quad Cities region. From building 1 home per year, we now average between 4 and 6 homes every year in our program. This is no small feat as every home takes on average 200 to 400 volunteers to complete. Every year we average 3,000 volunteers working on Habitat homes in our community.
