The Iowa SIDS Foundation is dedicated to providing emotional support to SIDS and SUID families, to educating Iowa families, healthcare professionals and childcare providers on SIDS and safe sleep practices, and to supporting medical research into unexpected sleep related infant deaths.
The Iowa SIDS Foundation was founded by parents for parents. In 1993, three parent support groups formed the Iowa SIDS Alliance. In 2004, this group transitioned to the Iowa SIDS Foundation becoming a 501c3 non-profit organization. The service area for the Iowa SIDS Foundation includes all 99 Iowa counties.
