In 1986, Dr. Ray Fleming Dinneen was finishing her doctoral degree in psychology. She started Climb Wyoming that year as a summer program for teen moms in Cheyenne.

As Climb has spread across the state and received national recognition for its very strong outcomes, the number of impacted families has grown exponentially…and poverty now looks different in Wyoming.
