Founded in 1908 and formerly known as HCI Care Services & Visiting Nurse Services of Iowa, EveryStep is known for its ability to help patients, clients, and their families and to support community partners as they navigate challenges, address complicated care issues, and achieve high-quality outcomes.

EveryStep’s more than 32 programs and services support and educate new mothers; assist immigrants and refugees; provide developmental screenings and referrals for children; bring wellness services to communities; deliver in-home care to people who are ill, injured, or facing the end of life; and offer compassionate support to families during times of grief and loss. 

Serving Iowa from 14 locations across Iowa, nearly 400 employees and hundreds of volunteers are committed to EveryStep’s mission: we empower individuals, support families, and strengthen communities. There is at least one EveryStep program available to residents in every Iowa county. Every program is important and contributes to our mission. 

When people face life’s most difficult moments, we are with them, at EveryStep.
