On episode 5 of Rhymes with Decorah we talk with Carson Eggland, Executive Director of Helping Services for Youth & Family.
Since 1973, Helping Services has been a resource for Iowans to turn to for help. Originally set up as a crisis-line service, the organization has broadened it's scope over the years to provide services to clients of all ages - ranging from new parents, to youth mentors and mentoring, to substance and drug use prevention, and domestic abuse resources.
Helping Services for Youth & Families serves 8 counties in northeast Iowa. They are here to help your friends, family, and neighbors find resources in difficult and challenging times - focusing on promoting positive solutions in our communities.
Previous to Carson and his Wife Chauncy moving to Decorah, he spent 12 years working at the Ronald McDonald house of Iowa City, assisting thousands of families and children in need while receiving medical care. These days the Eggland Family has grown, and is on the run - literally some days! Catch them on the trails or out for a neighborhood walk.
Thank you to Carson and amazing staff of Helping Services for all that they provide in our region!
