What are LSI’s Early Childhood Services?
Our Early Childhood Services are all about building up healthy Iowa families, preventing child abuse, and creating stronger communities and support networks for parents. In Muscatine County, LSI educates and empowers parents through our HOPES program. We walk alongside parents of young children by providing regular in-home visits to answer parenting questions, share information, and ensure families are raising their children in happy, healthy homes.
