Lutheran Services in Iowa Seeking Volunteers
Lutheran Services in Iowa’s Refugee Community Services program is seeking volunteers to provide literacy education for women from the refugee community who have started in-home child care businesses. Volunteers will help these women incorporate literacy into their child care programs through modeling and education. Volunteers will meet in providers’ homes once a week for 10 weeks and follow a curriculum of reading books and facilitating activities with providers and children. These classes will begin in early September. For more information, contact Volunteer Specialist Elly Gentry at 515-271-7387.


New Loss of Child Support Group
UnityPoint Hospice and UnityPoint Health – Des Moines Spiritual Care, have created a new support group called LIGHT (Listen, Inspire, Grow, and Hope Together). The group is for parents who have lost a child with a medical need that required the parents to also be caregivers.
The LIGHT Group will meet the third Thursday of the month at 11:30 a.m. at Iowa Methodist Medical Center, Kelly Dining Room – Cafeteria on Level B. (The first session will meet in the CPE Classroom, which is on the 4th Floor of the East Building.)
