About PACE

Centrally located in downtown Des Moines, PACE has developed into the community-based division of Orchard Place and has been serving families in the Des Moines area since 1983.

PACE provides a variety of programs to help meet youth, family and community needs. These programs include academic instruction and support, mental health and substance abuse treatment, skill-building services for those with behavioral and psychological disorders, accountability and case monitoring, and informational community forums. These programs allow PACE to serve families with many levels of need. Collaboration with schools, Juvenile Court, the Department of Human Services and other area agencies help create a supportive network for PACE’s clients.
