How you can help:
Child Abuse Prevention Services strives to provide high quality, supportive, and preventative services to the community. These services and programs are available as a result of the tremendous support the agency receives from grants, community organizations, agencies, schools, and individuals.
If you would like to get involved and help support Child Abuse Prevention Services please consider making a cash donation. Cash donations can be made using the link below or by mailing a check in to our office at 811 E. Main Street, Marshalltown, IA 50158
Donations of new/unused items are also appreciated (please see our Nest wish list). However, you do not have to make a donation in order to show your support! CAPS invites you to join us during public events and activities, such as the annual Healthy Family Fair. You can also show your support by “liking” us on Facebook.
