Oct 21, 2012 - Staff
The Wyoming Community Foundation has awarded the First Stop Help Center $10,000 to support their work transitioning homeless Fremont County residents with mental illness to a stable, sustainable living situation.
The First Stop Help Center is a Lander-based nonprofit organization serving Fremont County. Its mission is to be a resource for those in crisis.
Starting in 2012, the center became the Fremont County provider for the Projects for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness administered through the State of Wyoming. Through this program, the center works with individuals diagnosed with a mental illness to provide support and training that allows them to maintain jobs, a stable income and a home.
"We are very thankful for the generous support the Wyoming Community Foundation has provided our PATH homelessness work through this grant," said Dana Flint, director of the First Stop Help Center.
