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 improve 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.


PROFESSIONAL BUSINESS CAREERS TRAINING INCLUDED:

Microsoft Office

Workplace Professionalism

Internet Core Competency Certification


The Cheyenne program was in the midst of a Professional Business Careers training when the pandemic hit. Staff pivoted quickly to connect these participants to technology in order to continue group and individual counseling, provide additional parenting resources, and complete the training in safe and responsible ways.

In partnership with Laramie County Community College, online classes included customer service and an Internet Core Competency program in digital literacy. These women are motivated and ready to work in a professional office setting, so if you or someone you know wants to change a family’s life and become a Climb employer partner, let us know!

I’m also inspired every day by the many resilient graduates in Cheyenne. 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,

— Misty Savage, Cheyenne Program Director
