Yep, businesses are going to ignore the anti-business tax climate of Illinois and line up to move to Quincy due to our All-America city status. If only that were true. Again with your slum-lords. Why don't you name one or give us an address so we can drive past and see what you're talking about?

You couldn't be more wrong, as usual. I own part of my home, and the bank owns the rest. Not a realtor, not a landlord. You said there was lack of police presence due to funding, and I asked what you meant by that. Are you saying that funding cuts have reduced police presence, or that you think there needs to be an increased presence, hence additional funding is required? It's pretty obvious…

HI sorry you didn't understand that landlords are responsible for the property, and I have a feeling by your input your a slum lord. The government put a lot of money into housing for lower income folks like the Hills and north 12th apartment complex and many others to help lower income families, they have to follow rules that keep the buildings in good shape and clean, rent is based off income.…

This is great i'm so happy for Quincy, I hope this will mean more income for the city in the way of more business, so they can step up patrols on north end to end the violence, North end has three nursing homes and a growing hospital complex, Maybe even employ some officials to perform rental house inspections to put restrictions on slum lords. More business coming to Quincy shows a good possible…

From www.gredf.org/quality-of-life After all, a business is only as good as its employees and a high quality of life leads to happy and productive employees. But it's hard to measure quality of life in data. Numbers don't tell you about community spirit. That's why we urge you to visit in person and experience for yourself…

Cheerful Home jumps for United Way

8 months, 2 weeks ago by

Children at Cheerful Home Child Care & Early Learning Center will be jumping in the 3rd Annual Jump for United Way Day on Friday, July 18th from 9:00 - 11:00 a.m. to give back to their community and promote healthy living.

“The Jump for United Way Day is a fun and healthy way to teach children important physical skills and community involvement,” states Jeris Grim, Cheerful Home Executive Director. Children and parents received information earlier this month explaining the event and prizes for participants including donations from Fun City and Knights Action Park. “If each child could raise $25, we would exceed our $4,000 goal,” Grim explained. If you would like to help the children raise money for United Way, please mail checks to: Cheerful Home, 315 S 5th Street, Quincy, IL 62301. For more information, please contact Jeris Grim at 217-228-0654. 

Since 1886, Cheerful Home has been an important part of the Quincy community, providing needed childcare and pre-school education for up to 176 children ages 6 weeks to 12 years of age. Cheerful Home holds the belief that each child is entitled to a stimulating and nurturing environment in which to grow and learn and is committed to providing educational curriculum emphasizing skills appropriate to the developmental level of the child.

 

“Cheerful Home and ultimately the children’s success is dependent upon funding from United Way. As a partner organization, we believe it is important to also give back to United Way. It teaches children at an early age the importance of being an engaged community member,” explained Grim. Cheerful Home is one of 21 United Way community partners that receives funding for education, income and health programs. United Way funds assist Cheerful Home in their Outreach Family Support Program and Sliding Fee Scale Program.
