Iowa Donor Net­work’s Donor Fam­i­ly Care Program

At Iowa Donor Net­work, we under­stand that say­ing good­bye to a loved one is dif­fi­cult and everyone’s grief jour­ney is dif­fer­ent. The role of our Donor Fam­i­ly Care pro­gram is to offer sup­port and resources to meet the needs of each donor fam­i­ly mem­ber, regard­less of their rela­tion­ship to the donor or type of loss they have endured. Our Donor Fam­i­ly Com­pan­ions offer a lis­ten­ing ear, facil­i­tate cor­re­spon­dence between donor fam­i­lies and recip­i­ents, offer updates as to how a donor’s gift(s) impact­ed oth­ers, and pro­vide infor­ma­tion on avail­able grief mate­ri­als and sup­port groups as well as noti­fy fam­i­lies of up-com­ing dona­tion relat­ed events. 

"At 8 months old I received a heart transplant. Everything I have done and will continue to do is because someone made the choice to become an organ donor."

Our Vision:

All are inspired to donate life.
