Grant to boost awareness of Wyoming 2-1-1

Posted

Have you heard of Wyoming 2-1-1? If not, you may soon.

Using a $15,000 grant, Wyoming 2-1-1 will work to expand public awareness about its services across the state, while also using the funds to support general operations.

The grant was made possible by the Tony Cate Fund, the Grace Amspoker Fund, and the LEK Endowment Fund of the Wyoming Community Foundation.

Wyoming 2-1-1 is a statewide provider of information and referral services. Since Wyoming 2-1-1 opened its doors in 2011, it has handled over 38,000 inquiries for help. It’s a free, confidential, and multilingual service available to all residents across Wyoming. Wyoming 2-1-1 connects individuals to over 2,500 programs across Wyoming — such as shelter, food, physical and mental health resources, employment support services, programs for children, youth and families, support for veterans, seniors and persons with disabilities, and support following a community crisis or disaster.

To find resources, individuals can dial 2-1-1 and speak with a community resource specialist, can text their zip code to 898-211, or visit www.wyoming211.org and use the guided search for services in their community.
