Waukee Area Christian Services

Waukee Area Christian Services (WACS) is a non-profit outreach ministry supported by Waukee area churches. As a community of faith, our organization is united in sharing God’s love. We do this by providing assistance and connecting those in need with resources that will enable them to become healthier in mind, body, and spirit.

We strive to provide free, healthy and nutritious food directly to those who may not have enough to eat. Additional services include free health care, seasonal programs and client advocate services. All services are volunteer-driven and supported by donations from citizens like you.

If you’re in need of our services or want to get involved, please connect with us by phone (515) 987-5523 or the Contact Us page.
