The new Vodec facility in Urbandale, Iowa is located in the Aurora Business Park just off I-35.

URBANDALE, IOWA — Less than one year after starting to provide Services in Dallas County, Vodec’s Central Iowa operation is  expanding and relocating to Urbandale, a suburb in Des Moines’ growing northwest corridor.
The move adds considerable space to manage and administer a full range of residential, day habilitation, pre-vocational and community employment services. It’s a good deal for a much wider population of consumers and potential consumers in Polk and the surrounding counties.
We’re excited!
The new Center is located in Building 15 of the Aurora Business Park.
Address: 4406 114th Street, Urbandale, Iowa 50322.
It has easy access from I-35.  The management company still has a bit of remodeling and touch-up work to do before the doors open, but Iowa Operations Director Mark Stromer says the priority for what moves first is based on what can help Vodec get the most people served.
“What I’m concerned about is getting the service moved over from Adel. We have teams working on getting people transported. It’ll be a process. But once our programs have relocated to Urbandale, we’re going to start seeing pretty substantial referral and growth, because it’s in a much more populated market.”
The Urbandale facility has about 8,900 square feet of space. Vodec CEO Steve Hodapp beams that it’s not just the size, the openness and convenience caught his eye.
“It’s all accessible to get into the building, there are no barriers. Within the building, no barriers. It is reachable to anybody with a disability,” he describes.
“Plus there’s good, natural light coming in on two full sides.”
The facility has parking available in the front and rear. It also features a spacious kitchen area and conference room facilities.
Our year in Dallas County has been marked by tremendous growth. Almost 40 employees will transfer to Urbandale. Projections call for more hiring almost immediately. If you or someone you know is looking for employment, and want to learn more about a Vodec job, start on Vodec advertises all our of opportunities under the employer code “Vodec.” We have frequent openings in front line support, but as Urbandale grows, keep your eye on listings for supervisory and management positions as well.
 This move won’t affect any of the consumers currently being served in our Council Bluffs or Omaha work centers.
The most significant change for our current Central Iowa consumers, aside from transportation coordination will be the immediate availability of day habilitation services.
 Vodec is excited about the opportunities this expansion provides, and the chance to meet our new neighbors. Please watch Vodec’s facebook page for information about our Urbandale open house.
