Acerca de

AMOS is a broad-based organization of faith congregations, neighborhood groups, and nonprofits working together to develop citizen leaders, strengthen community institutions, and advocate on the issues important to families. Together, AMOS leaders are working to build relationships across lines of race, income, citizenship status, geography, and religion in Des Moines and surrounding suburbs, Ames, and rural Polk, Story, and Warren counties.


AMOS has a 25+ year track record of success in Central Iowa. Significant victories include initiating Let’s Talk- a restorative justice mediation program in Des Moines Public Schools, securing access to free prenatal care for hundreds of uninsured pregnant women in Story County, leveraging funding for the Lauridsen Skatepark in Des Moines- the country’s largest open-air skatepark, and creating Project IOWA- a workforce intermediary that has trained and placed over 600 formerly impoverished central Iowa residents into career track, living wage jobs. AMOS is affiliated with the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF), the nation’s oldest and largest community organizing network.
