Annual Report

Your Trusted Support When Life Gets Tough.

We’re proud to provide you with an update on our transformational year at Foundation 2 Crisis Services.

In our last fiscal year (July 1, 2022-June 30, 2023), our services have expanded to meet the increasing mental health and suicide prevention needs we see across Iowa. We continue to support more people annually than ever before in our agency’s 53 year history.

A major achievement in the last fiscal year is the actualization of a long-time dream. In 2018, our strategic plan included intentions to create a centralized space for staff, consolidating many of our seven individual locations. We are so grateful that through the support of many individuals like you, we were able to make this a reality.

We’re grateful to have the tremendous support of our donors and so many community partners who allow us to continue to provide high-quality services that are free, confidential, and available 24/7. We’re proud to provide you with an update on our transformational year at Foundation 2 Crisis Services.

In October 2022, we purchased the historic Witwer building in Downtown Cedar Rapids and embarked on a $5.4 million capital campaign to create a new headquarters for our agency. We look forward to joining the vibrant Downtown community and know that it will provide ample opportunity to connect with more individuals in need, community partners, and businesses seeking support.
