What is Family Connections

Family Connections is a home visiting program that works one-on-one with families to build on their strengths, support parents, and create healthier environments for children under 5. It equips families with the skills they need for a successful future: strong problem-solving and goal-setting skills, understanding of the dynamics at play in their lives, and a vision for the future. The focus of Family Connections is on supporting parents by making referrals to needed resources, guiding the family through needed health and developmental screenings, and improving overall well-being.

You qualify for Family Connections if you live in Poweshiek County, you have a child under 5 years of age in the home or one of your family members is pregnant, and if your income meets guidelines (under $53,000 for a family of four).
