OUR PROGRAMS

 

Family Development

 

Our family development programs use an evidence-based model that implements one-on-one guidance for families in areas such as financial literacy, goal setting, relationship building, and referrals to community resources.

Early Childhood Programs

 

MICA's foundational early childhood program was Head Start. We now provide early childhood education, both in and out of the classroom, for children ages 0-4 and pregnant women through our Head Start and Early Head Start programs.  ECP also encourages childhood nutrition through the (CACFP) Child and Adult Care Food Program.

Health Services

 

Operating dozens of different programs designed to weave a safety net under Iowa's residents in poverty, MICA's health services range from WIC, to early childhood screenings, to a full-service dental clinic. We focus on referrals to area providers and work to increase access to mental, physical, and dental health care.

Housing

 

The housing department ensures that central Iowa residents are living in safe and energy-efficient homes through our Weatherization and LIHEAP programs. We also provide energy saving tips to help you lower your energy bills.

Community

 

MICA participates actively in the communities it serves. Some of our  initiatives include the Spread the Words - Read by 3rd! early literacy program and the innovative Rogers University program.
