QC Nonprofits Search for Permanent Housing for 100 Households

Humility Homes is trying to find places to live for tenants displaced by The Davenport building collapse.

Working with the Red Cross, the nonprofit and other local agencies are looking for permanent housing for around 100 households.

They [tenants] don't have anything that's going to be needed in a normal lease agreement.

Spokesman, Joshua Graves, says Humility Homes is trying to identify "lenient landlords" who are willing to help. "Understanding that all these people that are displaced have no identification, they don't have anything that's going to be needed in a normal lease agreement. And so, whether it be a landlord that's being understanding of that, or being able to help with the first month's rent, or any of those deposits, just being able to be accommodating and understanding during this time."

On Saturday, Humility Homes will hold its annual, "Welcome Home Block Party." Graves says it'll include a resource fair.

Humility Homes is currently helping about a dozen tenants from the Davenport building collapse.

Saturday's block party will be held from 11 am until 2 pm at West 6th Street and Fillmore Street in Davenport.
