On March 6th, Carol O’Brien, Operations Director for Foundation 2, participated in the Coalition for Family and Children’s Services in Iowa Day on the Hill in Des Moines.  Carol spoke with representatives such as Art Staed about about shelters for children and foster families and the need for continued support from the state. Foundation 2 is one of the only youth shelters in Eastern Iowa that accepts “non-system” youth, or those not yet involved with the Department of Human Services.

During this special day, Carol and other Coalition members requested a 5% increase to services such as Child Welfare Emergency Services and investment in social workers in Iowa.  Coalition members from cross the stated delivered their message for support of the services and systems that endure safety, permanency and well-being for the children of the state of Iowa.
