What We Do

As one of Iowa's most trusted human services agencies, LSI has a legacy of serving children and families for more than 150 years. Our Early Childhood Services provide critical care, guidance, and education to parents of young children across the state. Whether we're meeting with families through in-home weekly visits, connecting them to local resources in their community, or hosting support groups for parents to bond, this team makes a direct impact on the lives of the Iowans we are privileged to serve. You can join us on our mission to provide hope and healing.

What You'll Do

Want to make a difference in the life of children and families? Family Support Workers (FSW) offer home visits to expectant parents and caregivers of small children, providing parenting education, support, and advocacy. Family Support Workers link parents to resources, promote optimal child health and development, and problem solve with parents. Family needs and abilities are evaluated on an ongoing basis. Family Support Workers assist families in designing individualized support plans and empower families overtime to achieve their chosen goals. Our home visitation program is part of a nationwide initiative designed to empower families to become and remain healthy and strong.

What You'll Need

Qualified applicants will have a Bachelor's degree in a health, education, or human service related field and one year of related experience working with children and families.

This position requires a valid driver's license, auto insurance, a good driving record and the ability to pass an extensive background check including checks of the Dependent Adult and Child Abuse registries, Sex Offender registry and a criminal history check.
