About Us

Through collaboration and community engagement, the mission of Polk County Health Services  (PCHS) is to provide visionary leadership, advocacy, and education that improves access to brain health and disability services and empowers individuals and families for better wellbeing and quality of life across their lifespan. 

PCHS was established in 1976 to develop and administer county tax levy funding for a local network of services and support for people living with a disability. Today, PCHS remains a private, nonprofit organization, governed by a community board that is committed to offering effective and responsive local services. 

The vision of Polk County Health Services is to improve the wellbeing and quality of life for Iowans.
