Thanks to our sponsors, we were able to dedicate funds this program and provide shoes for children throughout the state. Only one pair of shoes per child is granted annually, and a voucher can be re-applied for every year.

Who Qualifies?

Children in foster care, relative placement or other approved placement by the Department of Human Services are qualified for the Shoe Voucher program. Children ages 1 to 18 are eligible, and any child over age 18 must have been re-entered in the foster care system or special needs basis.

How Does it Work?

Families may receive funding once per 12-month calendar year, based on the date of approved application. Families and guardians are welcome to apply with our Shoe Voucher Application. All approvals are based on program fund balance and Families Helping Families of Iowa has the right to refuse funding to anyone.

The child must be adjudicated and be assigned a social worker to be eligible for funding.

Sports & Activity Footwear

If your child needs new shoes for sports or another activity, we can help. Through our Spread Your Wings activity scholarships, you can apply for sports and athletic footwear.

Many thanks to our local sponsor:
