Seton House shares gratitude for Wyo Gives donations and excitement for a new fall program
CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The Seton House is a non-profit that’s home to single parents and struggling families. They received 7,112 dollars on Wyo Gives day a couple of weeks back.
Deanna Frey, the executive director, said they wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for this generous community.
She added this amount means the world because they had to cancel their fundraiser this year due to the outbreak of COVID-19. However, she’s grateful for everyone who thought of them.
“People believe in their neighbors and their neighbors are the people living here who’ve had trauma in their lives and are working to build a stronger foundation for their families and for themselves,” Frey said.
Also, they are getting excited for their latest program, Connections, coming in October.
Jolynn Wright, the programming manager, said it starts Oct. 5.
“The class will last for three weeks and we will be holding it virtually because of COVID-19,” Wright said.
She added people going through this program are people already involved in the Seton House and another program with Casper Housing Authority.
After the class, they will work with a coach to make the life plan they made happen.
“I have wanted this program to launch in our community for more than two years. I am so excited we have garnished the excitement we have,” Wright said.
She added they hope to expand the Connections program to the whole community.
