We know that Iowans, when given the opportunity will do all they can to support these children. We believe Iowans will welcome them into their homes and provide financial and emotional support while they go through the legal process or until they are united with family.
1000 Kids for Iowa launches an open call for churches, community groups, social service organizations and others to open their hearts, minds and homes to these children.
We will accept offers of help, supplies and financial assistance, and insist that the federal government release children to Iowa commensurate with the offers of help we collect.
Organizations, churches, groups and individuals offering to help should sign up on our website so we can identify the number of children Iowans are willing to assist.
1000 Kids for Iowa ill provide support to these children in Iowa by making sure they are in safe homes, have legal representation, medical care, emotion support and are enrolled in school.
