CEDAR RAPIDS — Families Helping Families of Iowa (FHF), a local nonprofit that supports children in foster care has announced they have moved to a new location. The new office is located at 6000 Seventh St. SW in Cedar Rapids will house the organization’s administration office and Clothing Closet.
“We are thrilled to have finally found the perfect new location for Families Helping Families after many years of searching. This building is larger, more accessible and will allow for the organization to grow and support Iowa’s foster families for many years,” said Melissa Carlson, Executive Director of Families Helping Families of Iowa.
The purchase of the new building was made possible, in large part, thanks to donations from The Hall-Perrine Foundation and Scott and Penny Olson.
"We are so appreciative of the support we have received over the years from so many businesses and individuals," Carlson said. "Thanks to Hall-Perrine, The Olson's, and many others, we will be better able to fulfill our mission and provide clothing, school supplies, tutoring, activity scholarships, and much more to local foster kids in need."
The nonprofit moved to its new location in August and is open for business. A public open house will be planned over the next few weeks but visitors are welcome to stop by in the meantime.
