Join us in helping people, changing lives, and building communities!


For over 50 years, MICA has helped low-income families in central Iowa overcome their barriers to living a life of self-sufficiency and create the future they want for themselves and their children. A great deal has changed in that 50 years, but one constant remains: We can’t do this essential work without the support of dedicated community members like you. Join us to fight poverty in your community today!
