  • City of Cheyenne Aquatics Divison Logo


    The Cheyenne Aquatics Division facility provides families with fun aquatic activities. Programs offered include swim lessons, recreational pool time, use of a lap pool and a variety of fitness classes. 

    The grant money will be used to offer a program to meet the unique needs of individuals on the autism spectrum who are at high risk of accidental death from drowning. The program will provide knowledge to families on how to approach water, as well as providing information to the participants. The goal is to get participants to a point where if they fell into the water they would be able to reach safety.

  • Life Skills Community Rehab Provider Logo


    Life Skills Wyoming is a Waiver service provider for Wyoming State Medicaid, serving individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities throughout Southwest Wyoming for over 20 years.

    The mini-grant funding is being used to create a hydroponic garden that provides a natural habitat for a land tortoise. This will enhance services through year-round education about healthy eating, and the responsibility that comes with caring for an animal. The project goal is to relate to the needs of the individual through meeting the needs of animals and set healthy boundaries and teach healthy habits.

  • Olivia Caldwell Foundation Logo


    The Olivia Caldwell Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to funding life-saving pediatric cancer research and programs to improve the lives of children battling cancer and other serious diseases in Wyoming and surrounding areas.

    Having found the most effective way for the organization to spread the word about the Foundation and Patient Advocacy Program is through connection, the funds are covering cost enhanced outreach and awareness activities.

  • Wyoming Early Intervention Intiative Logo


    The Wyoming Early Intervention Initiative (WEII) for Families with Children who are Deaf/Hard of Hearing started as a grassroots collaborative effort in 2020. This initiative was formed to promote collaborative efforts to increase Wyoming's capacity to provide quality early intervention services for families and their children who are Deaf/Hard of Hearing from birth to kindergarten.

    The WEII is using the mini-grant funding to increase early interventionists' capacity to understand and implement effective coaching principles when working with families with children who are Deaf/Hard of Hearing. The early interventionists then use these coaching principles to teach families as they integrate the identified best practices, strategies, and techniques within daily routines in their own homes and communities.

  • Wyoming Hands and Voices Logo


    Wyoming Families for Hands & Voices (WYHV) is a parent-driven, non-profit organization that provides unbiased support to families of Deaf/Hard of Hearing (D/HH) children to assist them in reaching their fullest potential. The organization is part of a nation-wide Hands & Voices organization that started in Colorado in 1996.

    This mini-grant will be used to help with communication and dissemination of information important to Wyoming families raising children who are D/HH. The goal of this project is to help Wyoming families continue to receive a Wyoming Newsletter in order to be informed about Wyoming news, events, policy, opportunities, and life pertaining to raising a child who is D/HH in Wyoming.
