We partner with families to help children with special health care needs live a great life.
ChildServe will be uniquely positioned in Iowa to improve the health and well-being of children with special health care needs.
Making a difference
Whether we are teaching, providing therapies, or just having fun, our devoted staff is committed to helping children and young adults live a great life. We take pride in making a difference in the big things and the small. We partner with families to make sure that each individual we serve has access to the best resources available. Every day is a great day filled with smiles and laughter and a passion for celebrating each success!
Atmosphere of Fun
At ChildServe, it’s not unusual to see kids on bikes, executive staff getting pied in the face, dunk tanks, seasonal parties including tailgating, trick or treating, and a holiday celebration. We have annual craft fairs, basket raffles, bake sales and more! We celebrate casual Friday where staff enjoy wearing jeans and a variety of ChildServe apparel from our very own store!
Here at ChildServe we are experts in our own fields but join together to form an unstoppable multi-disciplinary team. By combining strengths and drawing off of each other’s areas of expertise, this team has what it takes to deliver the best support for the children we serve. With opportunities for staff to get involved in “bigger picture” projects and committees outside of their normal scope, we truly approach growth and development as an organization.
State of the Art Facilities and Services
With a newly expanded, bright and colorful building comes a variety of fun and unique features! We have a kid friendly color scheme, squishy floor tiles, feature wall with bright color changing lights, a giant pin wall, state of the art therapeutic swimming pool, sensory gym, and a brand new therapeutic recreation gym with zip line. Unique in the state of Iowa, our inpatient skilled nursing service focuses on the well-being of the whole child. We also have the only pediatric Physiatrist in Iowa. As a one-stop-shop, we have on-site Orthotists, Psychologists, Social Workers, Therapists, Case Management, a CARF-accredited Impatient Rehabilitation Program, and a variety of other services as well as an on-site Spirit Café for staff, children, and their families.
I believe the more fun you have, the more fun the child will have, which means better engagement and participation by the child. I have fun, the child has fun, and everyone gets to the see the child make progress, learn, and grow. That, hands down, is the best part of my job.
