Resource Centers and Intermediate Care Facilities

Iowa has two State Resource Centers in Glenwood and Woodward that provide a full range of active treatment and habilitation services to individuals with severe intellectual disabilities. The Resource Centers prepare and support individuals to live safe, successful lives in the home and community of their choice.  For more information on each center, please visit the Glenwood Resource Center page or Woodward Resource Center page.  

The Iowa Department of Human Services (DHS) is re-evaluating existing strategies and identifying new ones to enhance our commitment to ensuring individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities have access to the least restrictive setting to support high quality of life.
