Building A Better Future

Finding the Way

“Living at the bottom was definitely where I was at for a long time,” Heather, a graduate of Climb’s Commercial Driving program in 2015, recalls of life before the program. “At 24, I’d just gotten out of prison having absolutely no self-worth. Doing drugs, stealing just to make a living.”

Heather’s Climb job placement got her started as a driver for 4 Quarters Excavation in Cheyenne. She has since received several promotions and is now an estimator and project manager for the company.

Heather says her steady career progression has completely changed her life, from giving her the opportunity to buy a house and own a vehicle, to having the resources to support her autistic son. “My son has just blossomed since I have this stable job. He is such a bright, intelligent, busy boy. I have the highest hopes for him.”

A Win for Wyoming!

Positively Impacting Wyoming’s Economy

Moving families into a place where they can contribute to local economies creates a stronger Wyoming for all—resulting in more stable, healthy, and vibrant communities.

The State of Wyoming has saved $117 million since 1986 from decreased dependence on public assistance programs among graduates.
