ChildServe Named #6 Most Influential Nonprofit

ChildServe was recently named one of the most influential nonprofits in Des Moines—earning the number six spot on the list of Top 25 Most Influential Nonprofits in the Business Record’s 2022 Book of Lists. The award marks the sixth consecutive year ChildServe earned recognition from the Business Record for its influence as a nonprofit in Greater Des Moines.
