Foster and Adoption

Foster and Adoptive Family Connections

Four Oaks is Family Resources' parent organization. The Iowa Department of Human Services recently chose Four Oaks and Lutheran Services in Iowa to manage its foster and adoptive children and families services. With the intent to assist children and families closer to where they live, the state drew up five services areas. 

As of July 1, 2017 LSI manages Service Area 1 and Four Oaks manages Service Areas 2, 3, 4, and 5. While the two organizations are not partners in their efforts, they both exist to serve children and families, and help them succeed.
