In 2011 Operation Threshold participated in a community collaborative aimed at securing additional funding for home visitation programming in Black Hawk County. Our agency was selected among other community service providers to apply for funding available through the Iowa Department of Public Health.
Operation Threshold’s Parents As Teachers (PAT) program was established in Black Hawk County in 2015 with funding from the Shared Visions program of the Iowa Department of Economic Development. The program has now expanded into Buchanan, Bremer, Butler, Franklin and Grundy counties. PAT is a free and voluntary home visitation program, parent education for families with children aged 0 through 5.
