|Be A Better Parent
This information will help guide you in using your greatest strengths–your love for your children, your concern for their well-being and skills you already have–to help keep your children away from drugs and other kinds of problem behaviors. If you learn just one new way to communicate with your child it may be the most important thing you do today.
|Creating a Drug-Free Workplace
Alcohol and other drug abuse affect the profitability of a company – and impacts absenteeism, tardiness, and productivity rates; workman’s compensation claims; and the overall climate of the workplace. Our program, designed to build on the strengths of your organization, can create a healthier organization and contribute to bottom-line success.
|Iowa Media Literacy
Media Literacy is not one skill but many. At its core, however, it is a set of critical thinking skills that help people, especially children, to understand how media works, and how to manage media experiences to get the maximum benefits while minimizing potential risks.
|Power of Grandparents
As a grandparent you have a unique, and very important, relationship with your children and grandchildren.

Even in face of changing technologies and new challenges, you hold the key to important information your grandchildren need to know. We are honored to be able to share some of these keys with you.

For over 14 years we have been dedicated to Iowa’s Grassroots Blueprint for Action – a statewide effort to provide the healthiest communities and future for the children and families of Iowa.

We rely on volunteers, and the donations people invest in our efforts keep our organization working. Thank you in advance for your support.
