About Us

The Story County Family website is made possible through funding by Story County Empowerment. The Story County Family website originated in January 2000 as a Birth to Five Collaborative project. The Birth to Five Collaborative includes:

  • Ames Community Preschool Center
  • Center for Child Care Resources
  • Iowa State University Extension-Story County
  • Nevada Community Resource Center
  • People Place of Lutheran Social Service of Iowa
  • Story County Nutrition Coalition

The goal of the original project was to provide access to a “one-stop-shop” of information related to Story County resources and services for families of young children, ages 0 to 5, and the agencies who serve them.

In May 2001, the Story County Family website expanded the resource directory to include school-age youth programs as a part of a School-Age Task Force project to provide resources for families with children, ages 5-18, and children with special needs under the age of 21. Member agencies of the School-Age Task Force include the following:

  • ACCESS (Assault Care Center Extending Shelter and Support)
  • Ames Community School District
  • Ames Community Preschool School
  • Ames Parks and Recreation
  • Ballard Community School District
