Advocacy:

Douglas Youth Development Services (Group Home):  The residents are recipients of our efforts multiple times a year to make the lives of these young adults a little better by an assortment of donations in kind. Examples include warm cuddly throw blankets, gift cards to local theaters, tours to local historic spots, meals, swimming parties.

Jubilee House: This is the only home in Wyoming set up to house women parolees from the Wyoming State Women’s Penitentiary. The women staying at Jubilee House are required to stay a year, pay rent, obtain employment, learn to manage their finances and reenter society. Zonta Club of Converse County brings in welcome baskets to new residents that include gift cards, laundry supplies, personal items and toiletries, towels, stationary with stamps. We are “on call” for any other service that might be required.
