UH Dickerson
Welcome Home Dickerson Family!
The City of Davenport says "Welcome Home" to the Dickerson family. BreaLynn & Donald Dickerson, along with their children, were recipients in our latest round of the Urban Homestead Program and are now proud homeowners. It has been a long journey and the hard work has paid off. As previous tenants of the Davenport Public Housing program for the past five years, after a long six years on the waiting list for that program, the family used the time to get organized and work hard to achieve their goals of home ownership. The story is a heartfelt tale of perserverance. Their message to others is: "You can do this. It can be done". Click here to read the full story.
UH Davis
Welcome Home Davis Family!
September was a month to remember for the Davis family. After applying for the Urban Homestead Loan Program, they were selected as one of the two final recipients for this round. They are now beginning their journey as homeowners, and with their children they are already making their new house a home. Congratulations to the Davis family, and Welcome Home!
