Our programs and services currently reach more than 13,000 individuals and families in Black Hawk County and are completely free to parents and children.
Sexual Abuse Prevention in our Schools and Community
Black Hawk County ranks one of the highest in the state of Iowa when it comes to reported child abuse cases.
Family & Children’s Council is the only agency providing programs and services to help prevent another child from becoming another statistic.
Partners for Parenting Families
All prenatal and post-natal referrals are kept confidential and used to guide services in our community.
Weekly meetings with collaborative partners assure the avoidance of duplicative services while providing feedback on community needs to support families.
We believe that every man and woman wants to be a good parent, but sadly, many do not have the tools or support to do so. At FCC, we invest in each adult to help build them into the successful parent they want to be.
Our programming helps parents who reside in Black Hawk County with children birth to 12 by providing education, support and access to community resources through weekly home visitation.
Baby Safety Project
Programming provides the essential infant safety items to be distributed to eligible families in need. Pack-n-plays, car seats, and child-proofing materials are a few of the items offered to families. Families can receive a referral from a partnering agency.
