Workforce Managers

Overcoming addiction is just the beginning for Iowa Family Works (IAFW) women at a residential substance abuse treatment center for women and their children in Council Bluffs. Most adults need jobs that provide stability and sufficient wages to support themselves. However, the nervous systems of this population have been physically altered by traumatic experiences, resulting in numerous destabilizing emotional and physical symptoms. They need intensive support to succeed in job training, and possibly to keep a job at all. As part of this project to help the region’s most vulnerable people navigate workforce training programs, HFS will provide employment case management services as part of the treatment regimen at the IAFW center.
