Lutheran Services in Iowa (LSI) recently received $2,150 from the United Way of Story County. The grant was awarded to support LSI’s Early Childhood Services parent education programming for families in Story County.


Through the programming, families of young children receive regular in-home visits from LSI parent educators to learn tips and tricks to care for their children at any developmental level.


“We are so grateful for this support from the United Way of Story County,” says Nancy Krause, LSI’s director of early childhood services. “It takes a village to raise a child, and this funding will help LSI continue the important work of empowering and educating parents as they watch their children grow and thrive.”


LSI’s Early Childhood Services connect families to supports and resources in their communities, provide common spaces for parents to connect and learn from one another, and offer crisis child care in Story and Boone County.
