About Us



We believe we are making a difference.


In FY14, Iowa Homeless Youth Centers programs touched the lives of more than 342 youth.


  • Through our Street Outreach Program, IHYC had contact with 166 youth through drop-in meals, special events, classes, use of laundry and shower facilities, and the outreach vans.
  •  IHYC’s Aftercare Program served 82 youth who had aged out of foster care. 
  • 26 families (with 35 children) were served by the Family Futures program.



We believe you can help make a difference.


There are many opportunities to help IHYC transition youth into successful adults.
