New Opportunities Outreach has an office located in each of the counties we serve: Audubon, Calhoun, Carroll, Dallas, Greene, Guthrie and Sac known as the Family Development Centers. Each Family Development Center has staff that work with low income families on a daily basis to meet basic needs and development their own capacity to do so.
Family Development Center staff work with each family connecting them with programs offered through New Opportunities as well as additional resources and referrals in each county. Family Development Center Staff are involved in the communities they work in to stay current and knowledgeable of programs available to help the families in need.
New Opportunities is one of 17 Community Action Agencies service the state of Iowa. Iowa’s Community Action Agencies are local-based private, non-profit organizations that network with a wide-array of local organization to enhance the opportunities for low-income Iowans (children and families) to meet basic needs and development their own capacity to do so.
