We're a helping heart for Iowa.

You're welcome here. Heart of Iowa Community Services (HICS) is a community-based mental health, disability and social services organization that believes everyone should have access to the highest quality care, with no exceptions. If you need help with a challenge that seems too big for just one person, you've found the right place.

Welcome care for personal well-being.

Heart of Iowa specializes in coordinating provider access and financial assistance for a range of human service needs. A part of Iowa Mental Health and Disability Services (MHDS), we work with individuals and families of all beliefs and backgrounds in Audubon, Dallas and Guthrie counties.

Heart of Iowa exists to help hopes and dreams become reality. We’re impacting lives in three areas vital to physical and mental well-being, making good on a promise to build stronger communities full of happier, healthier people.
