The Fatherhood, Marriage and Family Supports Advisory Group Report
In the Fall of 2003, the Iowa Department of Human Services (DHS) formed The Fatherhood, Marriage and Family Supports Advisory Group. Iowans across the state were asked questions that government does not normally ask. DHS asked for Iowans' thoughts, opinions, attitudes, desires, and expectations for children and families in Iowa. They were asked about fathers and mothers, about marriage and living together and what supports families need to be strong.
