Crisis in Our Community: Mass Evictions Affect Over 100 Families
Davenport Bearing Witness
Davenport Bearing Witness has brought to light mass evictions of more than 100 families in our community. These people live in low-rent and subsidized housing in Davenport. Their apartment buildings - left in disrepair - were sold to a developer, who would like to put in more luxury (more expensive) living options. The current families - many of whom have lived in these buildings for years - are now faced with quickly finding alternative low-cost housing, which is not easy to find. They will incur costs that few of these families can afford.
