Are you a government agency?
Helping Services For Youth & Families is a 501(c)3 private nonprofit. We do receive state and federal grants, but that is only a partial source of our income. We receive various community grants and donations from churches, local organizations, and businesses as well as our annual Holiday Lights fundraiser. We also rely on the generosity of individuals who feel passionately about our mission. Consider making a donation to further our work in northeast Iowa.Back to Index
Do you offer rental assistance?
This is a common question we receive. In some restricted situations we are able to assist clients of our domestic abuse advocacy services. This is on a case-by-case basis. We are unable to help with rent or utilities otherwise.Back to Index
Why did you change your name?
Helping Services For Youth & Families changed its name in 2015 (previously Helping Services for NE Iowa). We found the old name was too general and confused the public about what kinds of services we offered. “Family” is a broad term and encompasses the wide variety of people we serve.
