First Time Here?

Every year Four Oaks delivers care and support to over 27,000 of Iowa's kids.

But how?

Instead of asking a child"What's wrong with you?", we ask "What happened to you?". All children deserve and receive our deepest respect, care, and attention. We are dedicated to addressing trauma and the impacts that lie beneath the surface of children and families in our community. Because we take mental and socio-emotional health seriously, we work everyday to provide the best possible care and treatment to those who need it most.

Four Oaks assures children become successful adults by addressing counterproductive patterns that harm future development and by addressing our community's social determinants of health. Learn more about our TotalChild® philosophy approach below in this brief video.
