Employees show recognition during month of April for a cause worth fighting for

Hiawatha, IA Take a look down the rows of cubicles at HACAP’s Corporate Office, and what will you find? Pinwheels. According to Prevent Child Abuse America, the pinwheel has become the national symbol for promoting great childhoods ever since the introduction of their program "Pinwheels for Prevention" in 2008.

From Head Start, to Paces to Quality, to Crisis Child Care, and much more… it’s safe to say that a big portion of the community HACAP serves are children, which explains why we take this cause seriously.

The HACAP Crisis Child Care Program offers safe shelter for children during times of family crisis. Care is provided in the homes of experienced and trained providers. Short-Term Respite Care may be scheduled to assist families in need of child care while parents go to therapy, attend parenting classes, or under other circumstances determined on an individual basis. All care is dependent on the availability of providers.
