For the pioneer city founded in 1825, those three characterizations formed the trilogy that made Quincy a gateway city for sojourners in crisis.

Situated at the western-most point of Illinois on the banks of the Mississippi River, Quincy was founded by John Wood, who regularly demonstrated humanitarian ideals of equality and compassion. Wood was not alone in his quest to build a strong and welcoming city. The community at large opened its gates to those in need, implementing action and generous care to many and diverse groups.
