Family Resources announced this week that the agency will soon leave the Annie Wittenmyer Campus and move to a new location at 1414 W. Lombard St., Davenport.
The organization will be open for operation at the new location starting Nov. 20, and will host an open house for the public in January.
The decision is a response to the evolving needs of the people served by the organization, and the new location will offer increased parking, general accessibility and opportunities for internal collaboration to improve service delivery, according to Family Resources officials.
The Donation Center and its Crisis Stabilization Residential Services will remain on the Annie Wittenmyer Campus in Davenport, while all other programming and administrative services will move to the new location.
“The Annie Wittenmyer campus has served as our home for 49 years, and we are so grateful to the City of Davenport for this long-standing partnership that allowed us to serve children and families in our community. But sometimes change is inevitable, and in this case, change was necessary. This move will allow us to be agile and evolve alongside the people we serve,” said Nicole Cisne Durbin, CEO of Family Resources.
