Area Services

Building Direction for Families covers the three counties following school districts in Iowa: North Fayette, Valley, West Central, Starmont, Oelwein, Jesup, Independence, East Buchanan, Edgewood-Colesburg, West Delaware and Maquoketa Valley.

The purpose of the community empowerment area is to give power to individuals and their communities so they may improve the quality of life in their own local communities.

It is believed that:

  • the empowerment of individuals will provide strength

  • sense of responsibility for their neighbors and promote partnerships in order for all to succeed. Individuals in local communities, working together, will identify and implement the best means for attaining desired results for themselves and their neighbors.

  • the desired results identified by individuals and their communities, with the support of the state, will be achieved as individuals, governments and agencies work collaboratively within communities
