An important sign of strength in a community is the way it cares for the most vulnerable in its midst, and it is in this same spirit that Family Resources cares for, serves, and supports the children in our Foster Group Care program.

The children in these programs are survivors. They are resilient. And in all of the ways that matter, they are doing the best they can with the tools they’ve been given. And so we make it our mission to give them better tools to build a strong foundation for life.

We walk alongside these kids and help to get them back on track. In our care, they develop the behavioral habits necessary to return home or to a lower level of care. This begins by maintaining an environment that provides for their safety, security, care and well-being. When a past resident becomes a good neighbor, family member, parent, and citizen, then we know we have achieved what we set out to accomplish.

Requirements to become a foster parent

Many new parents are worried they'll be on their own if they decide to foster. That's not true; you have tons of support on your side.

You have the Iowa Department of Human Services (DHS). Your local DHS recruits and approves families for fostering and adoption. They also place children with approved parents.

The Iowa Foster & Adoptive Parents Association has handbooks, contact phone numbers, information on training and case plans, useful PDFs for foster parents, and more online.

You also have your local child-placing agency for assistance. They're licensed and approved to train parents and place children in homes. You can find information on how to navigate the legal system or tips for working with birth parents, for example.

Many state non-profits dedicate themselves to assisting foster youth and the families caring for them. They may help with basic care, such as clothing or food, or educate parents on specific topics.

Refused to take me back into the shelter when needed all because of an isolated incident that happened 7 months ago verbally and I didn't even say it to the other shelter client I said it in the staff presence. From the day u get there they just look for reasons to kick you out and offer little to no resources to anyone needing the help. Also they kicked out two pregnant clients while I was there when they had nowhere to go making one choose to go back to her abuser and the other homeless for a while when she wasn't from the area. I thought these people were good in the beginning but they prove they careless about us or why they do that job

Great concept. TERRIBLE staff. Not the shelter staff. The ones that just watch over the shelter, their all nice and as helpful as they can be. It's the case workers and the ones that are really supposed to be helping people 😑 them workers in there DO NOT CARE ... They're there for a check a and that's it. They pick and choose who they wanna help and most of the time it be the yt ppl🤷🏿‍♀️

Working here was terrible. They are very understaffed, and the staff that they have left are horrible. On a daily basis while working there, it was drama and witnessing child abuse in many forms. Most of the staff have long criminal history, and have lost custody of their own kids. I hope the state shuts this place down.
