Addressing Mental Health
Solutions require the majority of the people impacted to agree on a common plan and then work towards achieving it. Community Action seeks to bring community members together to create such plans. WYO HELP can be a tool or a resource communities use to achieve good work, but our true success will come about when community level plans are created using community resources as the solution. This is one of those really big and overwhelming issues that is bigger than one small town can solve all on their own, but each community can help to guide and determine what solutions look like in their community while engaging with their county, state, and federal leaders. Keep your eyes open. If you see an opportunity to be a part of the solution, we encourage you to take it. When we work together to support the health of everyone in our communities we support our own health in the process.

Addressing Food Insecurity
There has been an approximate 10% to 15% increase in the cost of food from the time this report was compiled. We expect that this means that food insecurity has increased as well.
What is WYO HELP doing to support food insecurity issues?
We will be hosting community meetings in our 6 counties this summer to invite food pantries, churches, businesses, elected officials, and other interested parties to work together to best identify how to fully support people who are hungry.
We are opening a new food pantry in Rawlins Wyoming, adapting our operations slightly in Torrington Wyoming, and working to provide additional resources in our other 4 counties as we work to identify how to best address hunger.
We won't be able to do it alone. No solution will work unless many different people work together to make it happen. We hope you will join us in addressing hunger.
