Community Resources

 

St. Joseph’s understands that many people in our community are in need of various forms of assistance. Because our own resources are limited, we have created this resource page of recommended agencies and service partners in the Des Moines area. For comprehensive services, call 211 to learn how United Way of Central Iowa can help secure basic necessities, health services, education, employment, and financial and legal assistance.
