As of July 1, 2024, the IRC in Iowa is officially 2 years old! In just two years, the team has grown exponentially, new programs have been added, and we have opened a second office in Iowa City. We are so grateful to be working hard for our clients and the communities that we serve!

These numbers are impressive for such a young office but only represent a portion of the dedication to this work every day that makes these statistics possible. Thank you to all of our staff, interns, volunteers, and supporters for helping us reach this milestone.

Here’s to many more years of the IRC in Iowa helping people survive, recover, and rebuild their lives and livelihoods!
