Directory provides online accessibility to hundreds of health and human service providers.
Stemming from the 2012 Teton Valley Human Services Needs Assessment that identified local gaps in health and human services, the Community Foundation of Teton Valley has launched a website where residents can navigate their way to help ranging from employment and adoption assistance, food banks, shelters, counselors, support groups, and rehabilitation centers. The Teton Valley Resource Directory can be found online at www.tetonvalleyresourcedirectory.com.
“The Community Foundation’s 2012 Health and Human Services Needs Assessment highlighted the need to create one location that conveniently led people to the resources they need,” said Kim Trotter, Executive Director of the Community Foundation of Teton Valley. “This resource directory is one simple step toward helping our community members reach services that can improve their quality of life.”
The website lists scores of individuals, nonprofits, and government entities who provide services to Teton Valley residents – locally, in Jackson, and in eastern Idaho.
“Because many of the services available to Teton County residents don’t have visible offices in the valley, many people assume the services aren’t available to them. The directory compiles the resources to inform our residents where they can go in times of need.”
The Community Foundation encourages all resource providers to share the information broadly.
