Over half of our employees have some type of disability. As you work to become more independent yourself, we can share with you our own experiences having a disability, encountering and overcoming barriers to our independence, and how we’ve become advocates for ourselves and for others.  While we provide peer support services and host multiple peer support groups, there may be additional community peer support groups in your area that you may find helpful.

Below you will find information on local peer support groups by County and Organization.  Likewise, if you click on the County name, you will be redirected to the Iowa Compass Social and Emotional Support listings for your area.

If you know of any groups that are not currently listed here, please let us know so we can update this page!  Likewise, let us know if you notice any errors so that we can make necessary changes to keep this listing as up to date as possible.
