The Linn-Jones Foster Care Review Boards (FCRB) needs additional community members to volunteer to assist in monthly reviews of actions taken, services offered, and current status of cases in which children are in foster care or under supervision of the state. They consider input from parents, social workers, and others involved in caring for the child before developing recommendations to submit to the court. A full and diverse board ensures the court is provided with well-thought-out solutions that reflect the best interests of the child.

We are currently searching for volunteers age 21+ to give one Wednesday a month to serve on a board from 9AM-4PM. If you are interested in making a difference in the life of a child and believe you have the time and compassion to give, please don’t hesitate to contact Program Coordinator Jennifer Gericke at (319) 362-0829 ext. 101 or email her at jennifer.gericke@dia.iowa.gov .
