Iowans for Adoption is made up of a passionate group of volunteers who dedicate their time, talents and resources to promoting adoption through education, public awareness and collaboration. We welcome all volunteers, donors and advocates to join us in our efforts. Please visit our Volunteer page to find out how you can help.

We serve as a nonpartisan networking and advocacy group to promote the options of adoption and parenting to improve children’s and families’ overall well-being. We provide free materials, resources and speaking engagements to educate others about all aspects of adoption.
