We’re passionate about our mission to fight poverty in our community, and we’re committed to making a positive impact. Join us in making a difference!
Substance Abuse Recovery Partnerships
This program effectively and efficiently offers financial assistance to Park County residents dedicated to their substance abuse recovery. Our goal is to empower individuals to overcome the challenges of addiction and poverty and ultimately achieve their goals of employment, sobriety, completion of treatment, and breaking the cycle of poverty.
In 2023, the Yellowstone Country Assistance Network conducted a Community Needs Assessment and identified substance abuse services as a crucial need in the community.
Our recovery support program has received funding from the Community Services Block Grant for Park County, Wyoming, overseen by the Wyoming Department of Health Community Services Program as per Federal Statutes. To qualify for CSBG funding, applicants must have an income at or below 125% of the Federal Poverty Level.
We offer recovery services to low-income individuals in the Park County Court Supervised Treatment Program. However, some clients of other organizations may also need financial assistance but may not qualify for our funding due to income requirements.

EVALUATION OF THE PROJECT
According to data from the Park County Court Supervised Treatment Program, their partnership with YCAN has increased client graduation rates since 2017. In FY17, the graduation rate was 40%, but it rose to 41.67% in FY18 and 61.11% in FY19. Since some clients who joined in 2020 are still in the program, the most recent complete data is from FY19. Yellowstone Country Assistance Network evaluates programs and services using programmatic data to demonstrate expected outcomes.

We understand that times are tough and making ends meet can be difficult. The Yellowstone Country Assistance Network is dedicated to assisting those in need and enhancing our services.
