Volunteers of America Northern Rockies (VOA) has announced the relocation of the Homeless Outreach Program in Sheridan.
The VOA has been providing homeless services to the Sheridan community for more than a decade. According to a recent release, since merging with Northern Wyoming Mental Health Center in September 2022, the VOA also provides community mental health services in Sheridan. In an effort to streamline these services and enhance the continuum of care for individuals seeking help, the VOA has announced the relocation of the Homeless Outreach Program into the Sheridan Mental Health Clinic located at 1221 West 5th St. starting Feb. 15.
According to the VOA, the Homeless Outreach Program provides individualized service coordination that focuses on homeless prevention, rapid rehousing, and emergency shelter. Staff work with local law enforcement and other community partners to act as a front line in providing assistance to families and individuals in their time of crisis.
The funding for this program depends heavily on the generosity of individuals, local churches, businesses, and foundations.
