Family Resources is a nonprofit organization that provides a safe place for women, children and families. Most of the people that come to us have suffered physical and emotional trauma caused by domestic violence, physical or sexual abuse, or mental health issues. We help them heal and restore their lives. We believe that by mending a broken life or a broken family, we make the communities we serve stronger.
We are a Multi-Service organization serving approximately 30,000 clients annually. We provide service in ten counties in eastern Iowa (from Dubuque down to Keokuk) and three counties in western Illinois (Rock Island, Henry and Mercer). A summary of our services includes:
24 Hour Care Programs for Children – Family Resources holds a contract with the Iowa Department of Human Services to provide foster group care services to up to 50 boys and girls ages 12-18 on our Wittenmyer Youth Center Campus. These children come to us with significant mental health and behavioral issues as a result of their past experiences. We help them heal and set a new course for their lives.
Recruitment and Retention of Foster and Adoptive Families – We are a partner agency in this statewide network of providers working collaboratively to recruit, license and support “forever families” for Iowa’s most vulnerable children
Counseling and Therapy – Family Resources is a private provider of mental and behavioral health services in Muscatine and Scott Counties; providing individual, family and group therapy services on an outpatient basis.
Domestic Violence and Rape/Sexual Assault Counseling and Sheltering - We hold three contracts with the state of Iowa to provide Domestic Violence Counseling, Rape/Sexual Assault Counseling and Domestic Violence/Sexual Assault Shelter services in Clinton, Jackson, Louisa, Muscatine and Scott Counties in Iowa. We operate Domestic Violence Shelters in Davenport and Muscatine.
