A diverse partnership is necessary in order to assess our community’s needs and plan how to address those needs. Laramie County organizations have a long history of working together. Those partnerships were formalized in 1997 under the umbrella of the Healthier Laramie County Community Partnership (LCCP). Today, the completely volunteer-driven LCCP consists of nearly 65 partners, comprised of human service organizations, private-sector individuals, faith-based groups, funders and local and state government representatives dedicated to serving vulnerable residents throughout the county as part of a comprehensive planning effort.
LCCP’s Community Action Teams are seeking to engage more people with lived experience to help design and implement interventions aimed at improving conditions in our community in targeted areas.

A small group of community leaders and advocates gathered on empty land west of Safehouse Services on West Fox Farm Road to break ground on a $620,000 twin home capable of housing up to 10 high-schoolers ages 16-20.
Our community Action Teams are seeking to engage more people with lived experience to help design and implement interventions aimed at improving conditions in our community in targeted areas. To create meaningful change in our community we require the voices of all people, but particularly the voices of our neighbors who have lived the experiences and conditions we strive to improve. In this spirit, we are asking for assistance to identify people to join a few of our Action Teams. Specifically, we are looking for people who have experienced:
homelessness as a teen or young adult; difficulty finding/accessing affordable housing; difficulty accessing health care due to cost or accessing affordable health insurance;
and those who have some direct experience with child abuse (either as a survivor, or as a family member of someone who has been abused)
