Children & Families of Iowa has been restoring hope, building futures and changing lives for more than 120 years. With your support, we are able to help thousands of children and families every year. We bring hope to victims of domestic violence. We help children and teens find brighter futures. We help families in crisis and help create safe homes for children.
Since our last major capital campaign more than 20 years ago, the number of lives we touch every year has more than doubled. And while it is truly an honor and a privilege to reach out to so many more families, it has taken a toll on our facilities.
To keep pace with the increased demand for services, we have focused on being good stewards of our funds. We are proud of the fact that of every dollar raised, 90 percent goes directly to provide services to clients; however this leaves very little for capital needs.
We have put together a comprehensive plan to bring our buildings up to the standard they need to be for our clients and ensure they remain in good condition. Making our facilities safer, making them better equipped to help those in need, making them more efficient - it is all part of the plan to better serve our community.
This $3.4 million campaign for major capital improvements is the result of months of planning. Improvements include, but are not limited to:
- Roof/siding/window replacements
- HVAC/hot water heaters/electrical panels
- Energy efficiency upgrades (appliances and light fixtures)
- Enhanced security systems and resources
- Handicap accessibility improvement
- Renovate kitchens/laundry rooms/bathrooms
- Flooring replacements
With your pledge you can be part of restoring hope, building futures and changing lives.
