First National Bank has given $2,500 to support the Bremer County Family Nest Program at Waverly Health Center (WHC). The health center, in cooperation with family service agencies and schools around Bremer County, started the Family Nest in 2004 to help area parents.

"The Family Nest is a great example of First National Bank’s commitment to community," stated Christa Leary, Marketing Director for First National Bank. "It is an opportunity to partner with Waverly Health Center, to reach out and to have a positive impact on individuals and families in Bremer County."

The Family Nest program offers parents with children up to age 18 a chance to earn “points” for participating in or accessing services related to health, safety, self-sufficiency and family stability. Activities such as receiving well-child check-ups, going to the library, receiving dental care, participating in WIC programs or school-sponsored activities, improving grades or school attendance, obtaining a GED or high school diploma are all eligible to earn families “points” in the program.

Families are able to redeem the “points” each month at the Family Nest located at Waverly Health Center. Items to be purchased with points include necessities such as soaps, laundry detergent, shampoo, toothbrushes, deodorant, diapers and baby items.

“The Family Nest program is designed to encourage families to participate in services that help them become more self-sufficient, healthy and stable,” stated Brian Pins, WHC community health specialist. 

The Family Nest is open to families throughout Bremer County. Families may be referred to the program by individuals in the school systems, health care providers or other family service agencies. For more information or to enroll in the Family Nest, contact Brian Pins at (319) 483-1361.
