Children & Families of Iowa doesn’t just offer solutions for families and children in crisis. We offer hope when it seems like there is none left. We offer a chance to build better futures. We offer an opportunity to change their lives.
We have been here for children and families for over 120 years. We were there when children orphaned by poverty needed someone to help find them loving, permanent homes. Through the years, we were there for “unwed” mothers, for abused women and children, for abandoned teenagers and for families on the brink of disaster.
Today, we stand on this foundation of caring as one of Iowa’s largest, most well-respected providers of family services. From a small adoption agency serving a few hundred children to a statewide organization serving over 18,000 people last year, we have grown by adhering to one basic principle: every child, every family deserves to be safe.
People come to Children & Families of Iowa when their lives are falling apart. They come because they have nowhere else to turn and they have nothing left — sometimes, not even hope.
We are there to help them pick up the pieces. We are there to listen and offer solutions. We are there to give them hope that they can have happier tomorrows.
