Iowa Aftercare Services Network

Iowa Aftercare Services Network

Family Resources is a member of the Iowa Aftercare Services Network (IASN) which provides voluntary services and support to young people ages 18-21 who have aged out of foster care or other court-ordered placement.  Aftercare services guide young people toward stability and self-sufficiency in six key areas: education, employment, housing, health, life skills, and relationships.  Participants meet at least twice monthly with a Self-Sufficiency Advocate (SSA), who partners with youth to help them address barriers and develop skills to achieve their individual goals. In addition, needs-based financial support is available to youth who qualify for the Preparation for Adult Living (PAL) program. 

Aftercare Services may be contacted several months prior to a young person’s planned exit from the foster care system, State Training School, or court-ordered detention. Aftercare SSAs are available to attend Youth Transition Decision-Making (YTDM) meetings, transition meetings, or other events related to a young person’s transition from care. Involvement prior to discharge helps SSAs build a relationship with eligible youth and facilitates a connection to Aftercare services.

For more information regarding Aftercare services and eligibility requirements visit or call 800-443-8336 to be referred to an IASN provider.
