More than 180,000 children in Iowa have disabilities and special health care needs. There are many great programs out there, but they can be complex and difficult to understand. Many families struggle to get the care their child needs because of a lack of available information or difficulty understanding their options.

Access for Special Kids (ASK) Resource Center is an information, training, and advocacy organization serving Iowa families and caregivers of individuals with disabilities and special health needs. They do not provide direct care services, but they do provide the information and advocacy support families and caregivers need to understand how to navigate complex systems involved in their child’s life. Special Education Services, Medicaid, and Specialized Medical Services are just some of the organizations they help others partner with.

ASK Resource Center also helps families experiencing loss of work, financial strain, emotional stress, and feelings of isolation and grief. The staff and volunteers at ASK help minimize the emotional and financial impacts on the family, community, and, most importantly, the individual.

Your donation to Ask Resource Center will help fund over 100,000 instances of support each year through the combined service provision of online information, in-person training, staff, and one-to-one professional advocacy.
