Family support & child well-being
Our vision for Iowa is one where:
Human service and public health systems focus on prevention and early intervention, using proven strategies, like home visiting, that equip parents with the tools they need to create a safe and stable home and nurture their kids.
We reduce the number of children entering foster care by expanding prevention services, ensure children in care are placed in family-like settings and better support youth exiting the foster care system as they transition to adulthood.
