It is with a heavy heart that we announce that Project Concern is in the process of dissolution, effective Friday, July 15, 2016. In the interim, we are working to transition our current clients and programs to new agencies with as little disruption as we can.

Friday, July 1, was the last day for walk-in clients. Going forward, we encourage you to use the following contact information:

For 2-1-1 Information & Referral:
United Way of East Central Iowa 2-1-1: 1.866.469.2211
Please note: by July 18, area residents can dial 2-1-1 as they had in the past and the calls will automatically be routed to United Way of East Central Iowa 2-1-1

Emergency Shelter:
Teresa Shelter/Women: 563.690.0086
Dubuque Rescue Mission/Men: 563.583.1394
Hope House/Men: 563.582.9079

City of Dubuque Housing Services: 563.589.4230

This difficult decision was made as a result of continued funding challenges, including a lack of funds to support administrative, overhead, and case management expenses. Cuts in grants and dwindling funding sources at the local, federal, and private sectors also played a role.

We look to the community for understanding in these difficult times.
