MFS Open by Appointment Only

Meskwaki Family Services is operating as normal, however we are limiting face to face contact as much as possible to keep staff and the community safe.

Meskwaki Family Services is open by appointment only due to the Covid-19 public health emergency until further notice.

We are limiting in-person meetings due to the recent surge in Covid-19 positive cases.

If you need to be seen in person, please call the MFS office to schedule an appointment.
