CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The Self Help Center has raised $40,000 with a ways to go to get to their $500,000 goal. They are raising this money to get a safe house built on their Evansville campus.

Jennifer Dyer, the executive director, said there is still a need for this safe house in the community. “We see the level of victimization increasing with a lot of dangerous situations. We are still here providing resources to help,” Dyer said.

The Self Help Center was evicted from a safe house they were renting. A family with ties to the organization helped them get another safe house rental. This is a temporary fix while they continue to raise money.

Dyer adds they are excited to keep working in the community. “We are still busy going out and meeting with individuals who have an interest in helping. We are really excited and hopefully, we can reach our goal soon,” Dyer said.

They are hoping to have the safe house ready for the community in a year. Click here to donate.
