What We Do

The Rolling Hills Coalition

About Us:

In June 2020, Central Iowa Shelter & Services founded the Rolling Hills Coalition. The program began in response to the realization that people experiencing homelessness were leaving their communities to seek services in Des Moines. 

With the Rolling Hills Coalition, people do not have to leave home to find housing.
