Our Mission

Our mission is to be a trusted, compassionate resource for people in crisis by offering counseling, safety, and support during difficult times.

Foundation 2 was created in 1970 by Coe College and Kennedy High School students and staff who saw the need for user-friendly services for youth in crisis.  Our service hours were limited and mostly volunteer staffed in the early days.  Since our origination, we expanded to offer 24 hour telephone counseling and now we operate primarily with paid professional staff.  In 1976, Foundation 2 expanded to offer a youth shelter for runaway and homeless youth.  This service grew in 2010 from 15 to 17 beds in response to a community need for additional beds following the closure of the Linn County Youth Shelter.  Foundation 2 continues to monitor unmet community needs and add services when there are gaps. Although many of our services are offered to residents in the state of Iowa, we are located in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. 

Services provided: Our three core programs include the crisis center, the youth shelter and independent living services.  The crisis center offers 24-hour access to a phone counselor and in-person counseling for walk-ins and by appointment between 8 AM and 8 PM.  Our mobile crisis outreach program offers an extension of crisis counseling, which is provided on-site in Linn and surrounding counties. The crisis center is also the location for the Foundation 2 After Hours Food Pantry.  The youth Shelter, in addition to emergency shelter care, provides family counseling for voluntary clients.  Foundation 2 offers independent living services for youth transitioning to adulthood, as well as out of foster care.  We have resources to help people deal with current crisis (shelter, MCO, J-FAST, After Hours Food Pantry), past crisis (therapy, support groups) and develop resiliency for the future (counseling, independent living).
