The Harkin Institute

Home & Community Based Waiver Mathematica Interviews

For anyone that has utilized Home and Community Based Waiver Services, is on a waiting list, has a need for services, or is a frontline worker, The Harkin Institute would like you to stay and participate in a listening session.  The Harkin Institute is learning about community-based services in Iowa.  It is seeking input from Iowans who know about or have used behavioral health disability or aging services.  Attendees can be service users, their family members, caregivers or frontline providers. 


Participants will receive a $25 gift card for their time.   Please RSVP with Doug so that we may assist the Harkin Institute with planning.
