DAVENPORT, Iowa -- An organization that helps those struggling with poverty and addiction got a huge lift today.
The money will go towards buying and renovating condemned homes for families in need of shelter.
"Children are constantly moving from apartment to apartment, from school to school. It's very difficult to get into the flow of things when you are changing schools all the time," said One Eighty Financial Advisor Barry Donald. "Our goal with these dollars is to accomplish a number of things with affordable housing."
The group has already purchased a few homes and are in the process of renovating them for families.
