Individuals who live and/or work in Teton County, Wyoming can help the Teton Behavioral Health Alliance, an initiative of the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole, improve the quality of life in the region by completing the Community Behavioral Health Needs Survey.
The Community Foundation of Jackson Hole recently awarded $1,000,000 in funding to local organizations through a pilot granting program guided by two of the Foundation’s Initiatives – Behavioral Health and Housing Solutions - which are addressing cross-cutting community issues. “Our goal is for Initiatives’ grants to spark change specific to the behavioral health and housing demands facing our community,” Community Foundation President Laurie Andrews reflected.
On Thursday, November 16 from 5:30-8:00pm, The Teton Behavioral Health Alliance, an initiative of the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole, is hosting its first annual Soupgiving at the Virginian Lodge’s Wister Hall. The event is an opportunity to connect with fellow Jacksonites before the busy, and sometimes challenging, holiday season. During this free event, enjoy heartwarming soups from local restaurants, a moment to connect with friends old and new, live music by Kirsten Farney and friends, a collaborative art project, and activities and crafts in the Kids' Corner led by Teton Literacy Center.
