HACAP in Need of Staff to Keep Essential Community Services Running

HIAWATHA, IA - The current labor shortage has left community action agency, HACAP, with a total of 35 open positions that span across 9 counties in eastern Iowa threatening the need for essential services to low-income families. Many of the open positions currently available are for teachers within HACAP's early childhood preschool program, Head Start

HACAP serves 72,000 individuals annually and vacancies in critical roles could lead to the closing of centers if staffing requirements are not met, leading to a gap in critical childcare services for families in need.

One of the biggest challenges HACAP has faced in hiring new staff has been getting qualified applicants to apply. Another challenge has been attracking staff while many jobseekers are taking time exploring their options and weighing all the choices that other employers are currently offering. HACAP offers benefits such as health, dental, and vision insurance, retirement savings such as IPERS or 403(b), and paid time off (PTO), amongst many others.

"We're looking for passionate mission-driven people who want to make a difference by serving their community in an exciting way", says Jane Drapeaux, HACAP CEO.
In addition to the comprehensive benefits package, HACAP offers a vibrant and welcoming company culture where employees feel valued and are eager to succeed.​​​​
