HISTORY & EVOLUTION


Prairie View’s story began in 1864 in the small township of Illyria in Fayette County Iowa. Those in need of special care were placed on a centralized rural farm called the Fayette County Farm and Care Facility. The hope was to provide more direct and specified care for those with mental and physical disabilities from the township, as well as the surrounding area. Initially, there were 21 people cared for on the 142-1/2 acre farm.  It provided safety, food, work, and housing for its residents. 

County farms were considered sufficient housing facilities for many years. However, due to population growth and increasing demand for direct care, structural development became necessary. As a result, the first brick building was erected on site in 1901.  Throughout the early- and mid-twentieth century, many more additions and improvements were added to the facility in order to ensure it was livable for clients, compliant with regulations, and on the cutting edge of residential care. 

In 1985, Fayette County established a private board of supervisors to take over management of the county-owned care facility and renamed it Prairie View Management, Inc. The advantageous privatization of Prairie View opened the doors to state, federal, and medical funding for facility residents. Since 1986, Prairie View has continued to expand its services. During the first year of its incorporation, the Board of Directors signed a management agreement with Palmer Lutheran Health Center.Through the expert assistance of hospital personnel, Prairie View staff was better trained to develop skills needed to improve treatment services to clients. Prairie View also provided services to Palmer by implementing a laundry program which assisted the local hospital with their laundering needs and provided work options for clients.  Prairie View also incorporated a client-based work program that allows clients to earn money or tokens for learning important work-related skills. Not only did clients work within the facility, Prairie View also offered vocational services where clients may learn various skills necessary for gainful employment in the community.

Another notable addition to the Prairie View organization was the implementation of a well-rounded and entertaining activities program.  This program allows clients to partake in various hobbies and activities that can improve their overall wellbeing and satisfaction.  Several of the social activities offered include bingo, shopping, exercising, picnics and holiday parties, Bible study, church services and mass, fishing, and live music. Clients can also learn various personal skills such as personal hygiene, housekeeping, money management, laundry skills, and cooking.

As had happened before, increases in population and demand required more avenues for providing specialized care, which led to developing services to individuals living in their own home. Prairie View answered the call with individualized and specialized community based programs geared towards improving each client’s quality of life in a community setting, rather than in a larger facility. Prairie View currently owns or manages ten community-based houses and serves individuals in their own homes or apartments in Fayette and Chickasaw counties.


​Prairie View’s most recent expansion efforts resulted in the acquisition of the fifteen-bed The Heritage Residence Care Facility of New Hampton, Iowa and its four community based houses in January of 2014.
