Grant Summary

Prevent Child Abuse Iowa’s project will implement a Healthy Families America (HFA) state/multi-site system in Iowa, allowing access to training and on-going support for sites offering the programming in Iowa. The HFA model has been chosen given research that shows more favorable impacts in the areas of child maltreatment, child development and school readiness than any other proven model. HFA embodies an infant mental health approach, with the belief that early, nurturing relationships are the
foundation for life-long, healthy development.
