A Family Service Alliance

Horizons' mission is to instill hope, change lives, and brighten futures by providing life changing services to under served populations.


Transportation should not be a barrier to employment.

Financial Health & Wellness

Improving the financial capability of those seeking services, as well as raise the level of financial stability in the community.

Meals on Wheels

Food is essential to well-being and it's important that everyone has access to food that is fresh and nutritious. Horizons strives to meet this goal through our Meals on Wheels program. We ensure that older adults and persons with disabilities meet their daily nutritional needs through home-delivered meals or at Congregate Dining Sites.

Community Based Programs

Horizons’ community based programs strive to strengthen the community by supporting and serving families in need.

Mental Health Programs

Horizons Transfers Mental Health Program to Covenant Family Solutions Effective October 1, 2019

Horizons and Covenant Family Solutions (CFS) recently announced a new partnership that includes the transfer of the Horizons’ Mental Health Program to CFS. Horizons’ therapists have been retained by CFS and no jobs have been eliminated in this transition. Every effort will be made to keep patients with their existing providers and they will continue to receive care at the Horizons building at 819 5th Street SE. As community partners, Horizons and CFS will work together to assist individuals needing care in multiple areas.

Any individuals looking to schedule an appointment or with questions regarding the transition are encouraged to call CFS at 319-261-2292 or go to their website at
