Family Safety, Risk, and Permanency Services

Keeping Iowa Kids Safe

LSI’s Family Safety, Risk, and Permanency services empower Iowa families to be the best version of themselves. We use a strengths-based approach to keep Iowa families together by equipping parents with skills they need to be successful, independent, safe, and healthy.

Benefits

  • Dedication to keeping children safely in their homes
  • Commitment to stabilizing health and self-sufficiency of Iowa parents and children
  • Timely permanency for a child either with their family or an alternate caregiver
  • Reduced frequency of children re-entering foster care

Eligibility

LSI is a selected provider for Family Safety, Risk, and Permanency services through Iowa’s Department of Human Services (DHS). These services are strictly to help families in crisis who are at risk of abuse or neglect.

To receive services, a family must be referred to LSI by DHS. Because this service is provided only when DHS refers a family to LSI, we are not able to offer this service to families on an individual basis.

If you are looking for family crisis support, please call your local LSI office to learn more about services available in your area. If your family is in need of immediate care, please dial 9-1-1.
