Horizons, A Family Service Alliance (“Horizons”) provides three core services in Linn and Johnson counties designed around the mission to “instill hope, strengthen communities, and brighten futures” for those in need. Meals on Wheels helps East Central Iowa’s older adult population meet their nutritional needs by offering well-balanced daily meals plus safety checks and socialization. Neighborhood Transportation Service (NTS) provides transportation to and from school, job training, and work at times when public transit is not in service. The Financial Wellness Center offers tools needed to rebuild healthy personal finances, including money management, homebuyer education, and representative payee services. Volunteers play a critical role in helping Horizons accomplish its mission, contributing nearly 26,000 hours in the 2023 fiscal year.
