Dear Friend,

I hope you are staying safe and healthy!

A lot has changed in recent months, so I wanted to update you on the difference you continue to make for families. Our top priority during the COVID-19 pandemic has been to support all the women we serve with mental health counseling, tools to strengthen executive functioning skills, connections to local food and housing resources, parenting classes, and more.

For at-risk families that need support right now, we are there every step of the way, with the long-term goal of getting single moms ready to work in the industries our community needs.


10 Casper Moms Are Currently Pursuing Commercial Driving (CDL) Certification


Commercial Driving (CDL) participants in Casper were in the midst of their training when the pandemic hit but continued with life skills classes and mental health services online. Training behind the wheel has resumed with additional safety measures in place to prepare the women for essential transportation jobs.

I’m also inspired every day by the many resilient graduates in our community, including all of the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) graduates with critical skills to help during the pandemic.

Our community is in a safer, better place because these moms and their children have hope for the future… THANKS FOR ALL YOU HAVE DONE to support them along the way!

With Gratitude,

— Grace Torres, Casper Program Director
