We are fundraising to add to our legacy of providing programs and services to those who need it the most.

This year we are celebrating the 125th Anniversary of our founding. With our deep history, rooted in faith and compassion for all, and our future desire to harness and activate resources for our consumers which promote and treat brain health, overall well-being, and belonging in an environment free of stigma, we believe we are positioned to continue our legacy of providing services to those who need it the most.

Our campaign is based on 4 Pillars:

Adoption:

  • We are the only local adoption agency in Dubuque and the surrounding area.
  • The Adoption program is our flagship legacy program that dates back to our founding in 1896.
  • Your financial support will provide us the resources to continue to reach out to families and support them throughout their adoption process.

Brain Health:

  • We are committed to ending the stigma surrounding the word “Mental Illness” as we fully embrace the Brain Health Now initiative.
