Description:

AMOS is a non-profit community organization in central Iowa made up of 36 diverse members. AMOS pursues an agenda with multiple issues and responds to the concerns and pressures families face. These concerns and pressures are identified through hundreds of small-group conversations, and are then explored in depth by investigative issue teams who research the facts and develop possible solutions to the problems. AMOS then acts publicly, bringing the power of organized people to decision-makers to implement the AMOS agenda. Through this process, hundreds of people re-enter public life and reclaim responsibility for their future in central Iowa.

How to Help:

AMOS works thanks to the support of its many volunteer leaders. To find out more information or become involved, visit their website, which has contact information for volunteer organizers in the Ames, Ankeny, and Des Moines communities.
