In partnership with committed and trained adults (18 years of ages or older), girls develop qualities that will serve them all of their lives-like strong values, a social conscience, and conviction about their own potential and self-worth. Girls served through troops, special interest groups, or as individuals discover fun and friendship while building their leadership skill.

Iowa River Hospice provides comfort, care and compassion for those who have a terminal illness, including support for the whole family. Hospice care addresses the patients' physical, psychological and spiritual needs. This service is provided in the patients home, nursing facility or an assisted living environment. Hospice services are available 24 hours a day-by an interdisciplinary team consisting of Physicians, Nurses, Home Health Aides, Social Workers, Chaplain or Clergy., Bereavement Counselors and Specially Trained Volunteers.

Hospice provides education, medications, medical equipment, oxygen, pads and whatever is needed for the patient's comfort, regardless of financial status. Bereavement services are also offered following the death of the loved one in the form of phone calls, visits, monthly bereavement letters, cards on special occasions, a support group and grief groups for children and for adults. A library is also available with helpful books, tapes and videos. All of the bereavement services are open to the public and free of charge.

June of 2009 Iowa River Hospice opened the first inpatient hospice home in Marshalltown.  This "home" is a 6 bed unit for those who meet the hospice guidelines and offers services for acute, respite and residential care.  Acute care is for those who have the need for skilled nursing for pain or other symptom management.  Respite care is "rest for the caregiver."  Under this level of care the patient can reside in the hospice home for up to 5 days so that the caregiver receives a break.  Residential service is basic nursing facility type care and does involve a daily room and board charge.

The hospice home offers another option of care for those who cannot or are unable to remain at home.  This home sits in a peaceful environment at the southeast section of Marshalltown east of the mall.  The home features a bedroom suite for each patient and family and a sitting room with couch, chair and TV, phone closet and patient's private bathroom.  There is a general family room where where families can cook, shower and gather for get-togethers and support one another.  There is also a chapel for prayer, quite time and visiting and a children's room for little ones visiting the facility.  The Iowa River Hospice home is all about caring and support for the hospice patients and their families at a very fragile and intimate time in their lives.

LATINAS/LATINOS AL EXITO

Latinas/Latinos al Exito is a non-profit organization with 501(c)3 status committed to motivate and prepare middle-school Latinas/Latinos for post-high school education and the potential for economic security, civic engagement, and a stable family life.

The organization grew out of a pilot project in Marshalltown initiated by Iowa American Association of University Women (AAUW-Iowa)

The Marshalltown Latinas al Exito group (for girls), now in its seventh year, was organized in 2006.  The Marshalltown Latinos al Exito group(for boys), organized in 2009, is now in its fourth year.  The model developed in Marshalltown has been replicated in other locations.  We have active Latinas groups in Tama, Wright, and Dallas Counties.  Polk County has both a Latinas and Latinos group.

We currently are volunteer-driven with no paid employees.  Out local volunteers, college-educated Latinas or Latinos, provide leadership within the culture.

The goals, adopted by the Latinas/Latinos al Exito Board of Directors, are: Increased School Attendance, Academic Achievement, Parental Involvement in the Program, Graduation from High School, Enrollment in Post-Secondary Education.   We believe these goals will lead to the objective that students will graduate from high school and, for many, that students will obtain a post-high school education leading to career success.

Our vision is that new Iowans of Latino heritage will see the importance of education, that families will support the idea that their children should stay in school, and that students will be able to achieve academic success as a path toward a meaningtul future.

The Marshalltown School Dental Program is a service to help families access dental care. It began in 1997 to help address the growing problem of children, especially children in poverty, who were unable to obtain dental care. There are many health problems associated with a lack of oral health. These health problems can affect learning and school performance as well as a child's self-esteem.

Services are two fold: education/prevention and referral and treatment. The schools offer oral health education within the schools as well as a dental sealant program. A referral process is in place for children not able to access dental care. There is also financial assistance to pay for the dental care fro thsoe children who are eligible. The referrals will be made to the local Marshalltown dentists, as well as the University of Iowa College of Dentistry. The school nurses in each of the nine buildings in Marshalltown can be the first point of contact when using this service.
