Over the past 50 years, Four Oaks has grown from a single location helping 10 children to a statewide organization serving nearly 26,000 children and families every year. With support from our communities and partners, we have fulfilled our promise to thousands of children since 1973, providing each of them opportunities for successful futures.
We Can Help
At Four Oaks, we offer a variety of services to help children and families be successful. The TotalChild approach- where we serve children and families in an all-encompassing way, rather than addressing one issue at a time, permeates all that we do.
TO DIVERSITY, EQUITY,
For nearly 50 years, Four Oaks Family and Children’s Services and its affiliate organizations Achievement Academy at Jane Boyd Community House and The Affordable Housing Network (AHNI) have worked diligently to serve and meet the needs of Iowa’s children, families, and communities.
