Get Involved with HOME



Current Progress


We care about the people who use services for behavioral health, disability or aging. Just as important are the families and loved ones serving in caregiving roles. 

As experts in your role, we need your help. 

How to get Involved

Iowa HHS is rebuilding its community-based services (CBS) to support Medicaid members in finding Hope and Opportunity in Many Environments (HOME)

Our goal is to enhance services, allowing people to remain in their communities with their loved ones, and making it easier for them to access the help they need.

We've teamed up with the Mathematica-Harkin group to host feedback sessions across Iowa where dedicated Iowans can voice their thoughts and ideas. Your involvement in HOME will shape the future of CBS in Iowa.

You can get involved in multiple ways:

  1. Join virtual or in-person group discussions about the CBS system.
  2. Share your personal experiences through one-on-one interviews.
  3. Provide feedback through online surveys on specific services and support.
  4. Share additional suggestions through online public comments to improve the CBS system.

We want input from various groups of Iowans, including:

  • Individuals receiving CBS services, caregivers, and advocates
  • CBS service providers
  • Case managers and supervisors
  • Community-based organizations and advocacy groups

Together, we can make a difference and create a HOME that supports health, social connection, and quality of life.
