Welcome to MICA! 

Mid-Iowa Community Action, Inc. (MICA) is a private, nonprofit organization serving children and families in central Iowa. Established in 1965 to serve children and families affected by the conditions of poverty, MICA's foundational programs include: Early Head Start, Head Start, Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), Maternal and Child Health, Weatherization, Energy Assistance, and Family Development. MICA primarily serves families in Hardin, Marshall, Poweshiek, Story, and Tama counties.

 Vision Statement 
Our vision is that MICA, in collaboration with our community partners, leads efforts to strengthen families and communities. Together, we create communities where fewer people find themselves in poverty, and those who do have a path out.

Giving Your Time

At MICA, plenty of opportunities are available for those who are able to give their time to children and families who really need it. There are always opportunities to help children learn and grow in their Head Start classrooms and to aid families and individuals at our local food pantries. MICA hosts several events during the course of a year to help low-income families that could not be possible without the time and effort of many caring individuals. To find out more about current volunteer opportunities, visit our volunteer page.

Giving Your Support

Many MICA supporters are not able to physically get involved with MICA's programs. Instead, they are able to donate financially to help MICA lift people out of poverty. Each year, MICA receives donations from supporters who would like to make a difference. With this support, MICA is able to continue developing programs that help families change their lives and build their local communities. Find out more about how you can get involved
