As any new parent can tell you, children don’t come with instruction manuals. But we all know kids get off to a better, healthier start with parents who have the know-how and support needed to raise them.This is why our organizations continue to champion programs that provide vulnerable families the opportunity to develop necessary parenting skills right in their own homes. These family support programs are targeted investments that reap big dividends and are a proven strategy for strengthening families and saving taxpayer money. Because of these programs, many Iowa children will grow up safer, healthier and better able to reach their potential as productive adults.
