Park County Help
This is a referral-based program. Services are coordinated between YCAN, Park County Court Supervised Treatment Program, Heritage Health Center, Crisis Intervention, and others. Since 2017, our direct services have been coordinated with organizations and agencies that offer intensive case management services to low-income families in Park County, Wyoming.
Hot Springs County Help
This is a referral-based program. Services are coordinated between YCAN, The Help Center at Common Ground, Hope Agency, and others. Since 2020, our direct services have been coordinated with organizations and agencies that offer intensive case management services to low-income families in Hot Springs County, Wyoming. YCAN coordinates services with local case managers and social workers to provide low-income clients with a one-stop-shop of essential human services.
The Yellowstone Country Assistance Network will process application requests and provide funding to eligible low-income households referred by our community partners in Park and Hot Springs County. The Community Needs Assessment Addendum determined allowable grants-in-aid services provided by the Wyoming Community Services Program. Services include COVID-19 Impact Response in rent, deposit, utility, medical, mental health, and healthcare assistance. To avoid duplication of services, applicants must have a COVID-19 related need; apply for other federally funded COVID-19 assistance first, such as the Wyoming Housing Emergency Housing Program, LIEAP COVID-19 Relief, Energy Share of Wyoming COVID-19 Relief. Funds may also be used to respond to future impacts of COVID-19 and agency capacity building to prevent and respond to future effects of COVID-19.
COVID-19 Operational Adjustments
The Coronavirus required some adjustments, simplified procedures, & re-deploying emergency resources to address COVID-19 community needs. Park County Help has remained fully functional both in-person and remotely using online meetings, phone calls, text messaging, electronic applications, and email to conduct business with case managers.
We have also created a new Case Management Portal that is password protected to give our community partners access remotely to Park County and Hot Springs County Help.
