Project Recovery Iowa helps individuals, families, and their communities in recovering from the challenging effects of natural and human-caused disasters through the provision of community-based outreach and educational services. 

Project Recovery Iowa follows key principles:

  • Strengths-based: Services promote resilience, empowerment, and recovery.
  • Anonymous: Outreach staff do not classify, label, or diagnose people. No records or case files are kept.
  • Outreach-oriented: Outreach staff deliver services in the communities rather than wait for survivors to seek their assistance.
  • Conducted in nontraditional settings: Outreach staff make contact in homes and communities, not in clinical or office settings.
  • Designed to strengthen existing community support systems: Outreach staff supplement, and do not end or replace, existing community systems.
