Iowa Citizen Foster Care Review Boards

Volunteer to help children in Iowa

How did it start?

Iowa Citizen Foster Care Review Boards (FCRB)The Iowa Foster Care Review Board Program (FCRB) recruits, trains and supports community volunteers to serve on local community boards working to improve how permanency is achieved for Iowa children placed in foster care.

Over 60 local boards meet monthly to review the status of children who have been removed from their parents. Advisory recommendations in the child's best interests are provided by the boards to the Court and other system officials.

Making a difference...

It takes a village to raise a child (African Proverb).

“This quote reminds me that the well being and most fulfilling upbringing for ALL children is the responsibility of each of us, parents or not, from any station of life. It honors also the gifts that we all have to offer each child.”
 —Jayne Lopez, CASA Volunteer and FCRB Member
