You give everything to raise healthy kids.
Child and Family Resource Network
At Child and Family Resource Network, we like to think of ourselves as your "village" of support. We help to connect pregnant women and parents of children ages 0-5 years old to free family support services.
All services are provided by our compassionate, dependable team members who want to listen, offer knowledgeable advice and help with resources for parenting success. We approach every family without judgment and focus on connecting parents to the right support services that build their confidence in raising healthy, happy kids.
Whether you are a first-time parent or have older kids, family support can help you in these ways:
We check how your child is developing, offer ideas to address your concerns, and provide activities to build new skills, making your time together more fun!
Support To You
Why is your baby crying? How can you keep up with life’s demands? We listen, help you problem solve, and cheer you on in your important role.
Having other parents to talk to and being able to provide for your family makes your job easier. We connect you to parenting groups and can help secure diapers, food, and financial assistance.
You have big dreams for yourself and your baby. We help you name your goals, create a plan to get there, and connect you to information to carry out your plan.

ABOUT CHILD AND FAMILY RESOURCE NETWORK
Child and Family Resource Network is an initiative of Thriving Family Alliance, an organization that coordinates local efforts in West/Southwest Iowa to ensure families and children have the support and opportunities they need to thrive.
Each program meets different needs. We learn about your unique concerns to identify which programs will work best for you, so you don’t have to sort through all of these options on your own.
