On June 30th of 2018, ArtForce Iowa was hit with heavy rains leaving twenty-four inches of water covering the entire first floor. The flood has damaged 80% of our music supplies, 45% of our art supplies, over 50% of our inventory and equipment for StreetCred Studios and loss of general supplies e.g. cleaning supplies, paper towels, toilet paper and feminine hygiene products for our youth. We have come a long way in our cleaning efforts and our space is now safe again for young people. Recovery and resilience take time and rebuilding will take months. 

We need your help!
