Founded in 1895, Crittenton Center has a rich history of providing services to children, teens, and families in need.

Our Child Care and Preschool programs serve children ages 0-12. Following research and play-based curriculum, the children are cared for by trained teachers and classroom educators. We offer scholarship opportunities and accept state assistance. With multiple locations, we intend to eliminate barriers in transportation. The first educators/teachers that a child will ever have are their parent(s) and/or caregiver(s). We intend to support that role both in the classroom and in the home.

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.

Crittenton Center is a wonderful place to get parenting information, tuition assistance for child care, and help for children who are homeless and have no place to go. Crittenton Center has been helping local children and families for over 120 years!
