The mission of CCIA is to support community based corrections with community involvement, acceptance, and financial resources to establish and embrace pro-active programs that break the cycle of dysfunction for the family.

CCIA strives to assist at-risk youth and criminal justice involved individuals with innovative evidenced-based programs. The result has been the implementation of several key initiatives to address unmet needs: Children of Promise is comprised of three mentoring programs. Each One Reach One AmeriCorps provides over 1,300 volunteers to community partners in Linn, Johnson and Tama counties. The most recent initiative, Home to Stay, addresses the lack affordable housing available for the criminal justice involved individuals and their families. Since 2006, CCIA has been listed on the Iowa Register of Accountability, a testimony to CCIA's commitment to operating efficiently, effectively and ethically.

Established in 1991, CCIA has become a local, state, and national leader and continues to redefine the critical issues and provide solutions for safer communities. CCIA remains at the fore-front as a powerful and innovative organization by:

  • Delivering proactive and preventative programs that put youth first,
  • Developing and securing funding for community partnerships with law enforcement and corrections,
  • Hosting thought provoking public forums and policy conferences,
  • Redefining the way we address mental health issues in corrections, and
  • Being the first to create low-income housing for reunifying families of offenders.
