Coalition for Family and Children Services

The members of the Coalition for Family and Children's Services in Iowa (Coalition) help millions of children and their families every day through mission-driven organizations dedicated to providing the services that children and families need.

Our member organizations, many of which have served their communities for generations, offer a continuum of services including: crisis intervention; Family Safety, Risk and Permanency; Behavioral Health Intervention Services (BHIS); foster family care recruitment and retention; foster group care; emergency shelters; emergency services; delinquency prevention: detention; maternal and child health care; day care; psychiatric medical institutions; day treatment; independent living; nutrition; teen parenting; and special needs adoptions.

Through a public private partnership, we strive to improve the quality and accessibility of these services and work to positively impact public policy working in close connection with state agencies and legislative leaders.
