The Iowa Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is working to ensure people in Iowa have access to high-quality behavioral health, disability, and aging services in their communities. This initiative, called Hope and Opportunity in Many Environments (HOME), is aimed at redesigning community-based services (CBS) to help Iowans stay independent in their communities.

As part of this effort, HHS leadership visited communities in late October and November. In addition, three virtual HOMEtown Conversations are scheduled for November 28, November 30 (Spanish language event), and December 7 (Medicaid town hall event). These forums provide an opportunity for invested Iowans to directly connect with Iowa HHS leadership to learn more about HOME, ask questions and share their ideas to improve the CBS system.

We want to hear from people who use community-based services, caregivers, service providers, case managers, advocates and community members!
