At our core, and for more than 115+ years, Hillcrest Family Services (based in Dubuque, Iowa and serving eastern Iowa) has enhanced the lives of children, families and adults-in-need by teaching skills and providing information and resources. Mission Hillcrest Family Services enhances the lives of children, families and adults in need by teaching skills and providing information and resources. We advocate on their behalf and work collaboratively with local communities to provide a range of quality and innovative services. We share a historical relationship in our service to others with the United Methodist Church and the Presbyterian Church (USA). As we continue forming promise people with our health and education programming, we focus on our Six Promises model by providing caring adults, safe places, healthy starts, effective education, opportunities to serve, and opportunities for a spiritual connection. We were blessed in 2010 to provide services to individuals in 73 Iowa counties (increase of 10), 26 states (increase of 4) and a total of 22,236 people.
