Get Involved 

It takes more than just MICA staff to lead the effort to eliminate poverty in central Iowa. There are several ways you can get involved and help us provide better lives for families.


We believe that we can achieve better outcomes for the children and families we serve with the help and support of community members. Whether volunteers interact directly with children and families or indirectly through advocacy and other forms of service, every gift of time and caring takes us one step closer to achieving our vision.

MICA has had the pleasure of strong partnerships with hundreds of community members like you. These partnerships are key to empowering and serving children and families. MICA's volunteers truly help people, change lives, and build communities.

Finding time in hectic schedules can be a chore, but MICA does not want you to think you can't make a difference. While it is very important to have volunteer support from individuals in local communities, monetary donations are equally significant in empowering MICA to change the lives of families stuck in poverty.

Small donations can give more children a reason to smile, teach them how to work together, or provide them with the proper nutrition to keep them healthy. It can provide a family with the skills they need to obtain a better job, offer a family a healthy meal, or help victims of abuse fight their way back to living a better life.

You can help MICA eliminate poverty through your gift. Please contact Executive Director Arlene McAtee at 641-752-7162, ext. 104 if you would like to make a donation or have a question about giving. You may also donate online by clicking the Donate Now Though Network for Good button. Thank you for your support!
