Community Awareness Event

l to r: Josie Stahlin, MICA, Bob Conroy, Iowa FAIR Plan

We recently visited Mid-Iowa Community Action, Inc. (MICA) to explore ways to bring awareness of the Iowa FAIR Plan Association to more people. MICA is a private, nonprofit organization serving children and families in central Iowa. Established in 1965 to serve children and families affected by the conditions of poverty, MICA provides early childhood, health, family development, and housing services as well as community enrichment programs. MICA primarily serves families in Hardin, Marshall, Poweshiek, Story, and Tama counties.

Executive Director Conroy shared the mission and vision of the Iowa FAIR Plan with the MICA staff while they shared their mission too. There were many questions and by the end of the meeting, much valuable information was shared that will help both organizations fulfill their missions. We are appreciative for the work done by Josie Stahlin, Family Development Center Manager, to make this meeting possible.

If you work for a similar organization or serve on its board, let us know if we can share the same information with you.

Producer Profile – Turner Insurance Agency

The Iowa FAIR Plan Association was created by the State of Iowa to provide basic dwelling, home and commercial property insurance to qualified applicants who are unable to find insurance in the voluntary insurance market. With the assistance of the local producer, we may be able to provide this basic need for individuals that may otherwise go uninsured. Having insurance can help by getting someone back on their feet and back to a normal life after a loss. Our producers are our first line of contact. Without their diligence in helping their community, many individuals would not have this essential component to help protect their assets.

Please meet one of our appreciated colleagues, Turner Insurance Agency, Creston, IA. The agency was established in 1986 by Curt Turner. Katie Turner, the current owner, purchased the agency from her father in 2001.
