CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Casper Mayor Steve Freel declared Feb. 18 as unaccompanied homeless youth day at an open house at the Bradley Menzel Miracle home. Freel said in this proclamation, there is 50,000 homeless youth in Wyoming.

Mimi’s House in Casper is hoping to make a difference by providing a safe place for them to go and a program to help them become independent.

Cole Gray, a Bradley Menzel Miracle home resident, said the program has changed his life. “It’s been really good for me. I fell into a group of people that like to hang out and support me,” Gray said.

Gray adds he’s experienced toxic living situations and gotten into bad crowds. Now he’s grateful to have a place to call home. “It’s really nice being here. I’m not being judged or told what to do much,” Gray said.

He is one out of two residents at the home right now. There are five bedrooms in the boy’s home but they will never turn anyone away.

Chastity Greenwood, the executive director, said they are privately funded and hope to stay that way as long as they can.

She added they are grateful for everything the community has helped them with so far.
