Waiver Services

Our disabled neighbors in every community in Iowa now have choices. This consumer-driven program provides support they need through Medicaid Waiver services to live as independently as possible in their home communities. The Family Resource Center collaborates with the disabled people and their concerned families and guardians to ensure their needs are met to the best of our ability.

Crisis Child Care

Crisis Child Care provides free, short-term child care to children whose families are experiencing a crisis or emergency in their lives and lack adequate child care for their children.  Child care is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  This program provides a safe and nurturing environment for children, newborn to 12 years of age (or age 17 if the child has special needs).  Crisis Child Care respects the privacy of families! Your crisis is kept strictly confidential

Parent Time Out

Parents occasionally need a “time-out” from their children to put life and its problems back in perspective. We all know that children can push us to our limits. Parent-Time-Out gives parents a break from parenting. With our Parent Time-Out providers you can have up to 4 hours a month for each child to use this time for “YOURSELF”. This time is just for you. Take a walk, fix supper, go to a doctor appointment. This program is for ALL PARENTS! There is no income eligibility requirements, the only restriction is that you may not use the Parent-Time-Out program while you are working or attending school.


Early Childhood Projects

These projects provide services to family child care programs, centers, and preschools.
