Foster and Adoptive Family Connections
Four Oaks is Family Resources' parent organization. In 2017 the Iowa Department of Human Services 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.
We offer licensing and support to prospective and current foster and adoptive families. Did you know that in the United States there are more than 400,000 youth in foster care at any given moment?
