In response to the COVID crisis gripping our nation, our Sixth Annual Central Iowa Light of Hope event was held online on Monday, April 12, 2021. Help us fulfill our goal to raise awareness and funds to help give Iowa's abused and neglected children a voice in the decisions that affect their lives - and hope for a safe, permanent and loving home.
