EveryStep is one of our featured charities this year and has received a $2020 donation through our MFLCares program. The funds will be used to support the local non-profit’s vision for all individuals to have access to health care and support services to live their best lives.

“EveryStep empowers individuals and supports families through healthcare challenges and life changes,” says Tray Wade, EveryStep president and CEO. “It’s clear that Midwest Family Lending shares our family-focused commitment, and we are so appreciative of their support.”

Through MFLCares, Midwest Family Lending employees nominate and select one cause a month to support that is dear to their hearts. Our marketing director, Katie McIntyre worked for EveryStep for a decade before joining our team. In her role, she heard firsthand the amazing stories of how the local non-profit makes a difference for Iowans during life’s most critical moments. Katie also personally witnessed its compassionate care when the hospice team cared for one of her grandfathers and and great-grandmothers.

They need our support now more than ever.”
