The Coalition for Compassion and Justice is collaborating with Dorn Homes to develop a new affordable housing property in Prescott. These Lodges will house 4-6 individuals that would otherwise be living in a shelter. Dorn Homes will be building two Lodges locally as part of the effort to end homelessness in the Quad Cities. These properties will provide residents an opportunity to gradually transition from shelter living to market housing by offering the stability of a home while ensuring that living costs are within residents’ means. This stability, coupled with the services of CCJ, represents a critical first step on the path to independence.
Coalition for Compassion and Justice has served those living in poverty in the Prescott community since 2001. We are a client-centered organization dedicated to the needs of the most vulnerable. Collaborative since its inception, we continue to streamline services with our organizational partners and create effective and non-duplicative efforts. Our programs include Home Repair, Emergency Shelter, Advocacy, Employee Readiness, and Affordable Housing. Our mission is to end homelessness locally through connecting clients with housing and support. We believe that incremental growth, toward an individual’s highest capacity is the most dignified and successful path into the broader community.
