2 Ways 2 Help

We can get corporate donations when you shop. Here’s how.

Our History


Central Wyoming Senior Services was established in 1975 to provide nutritious meals, companionship, program support, and activities for the senior citizens of Natrona County. We began serving meals in a church basement and eventually we moved into our current facility, where we provided more than 38,000 meals last year. All of our programs are designed to enhance the ability of the over-60 population of Natrona County to stay active, healthy and independent by offering activities, nutritional support and services to meet their changing needs.


We were established as a 501(c)3 in 1976 to provide low cost, nutritious meals to the over 60 population of Natrona County. According to the Administration of Aging, as of July 1, 2007, Wyoming 90,500 individuals over the age of 60 and 44,681 individuals ages 70 and over.


Board and Staff


We have a ten member board of directors (identified here), an executive director, assistant director, three department heads and 23 well qualified staff members (identified here).


Community Outreach


Community outreach is very important to us. Our staff and volunteers are committed to fulfilling this mission. This past year, more than 3,000 community members used our facility, including a client base of 1,200 individuals. More than 38,000 meals were served in a congregate meal program. 125 clients participate monthly in the activities programs, 100 are served through the Wyoming in Home Services program, and 5 are served through the Family Caregiver Program. We answer more than 1000 information and referral calls per month including respite care, health issues, tax assistance and more. More than 65 community groups meet month at the senior center for a variety of activities including senior exercise classes, socialization activities, educational programs, college classes, Senior Olympics and several community service organizations.


Clients


While we target our meal services for the over-60 population of Natrona County, the largest group we serve is between the ages of 75 and 84 (14,538 meals served last year). The smallest age group served is between the ages of 60 and 64 (2,665 meals last year). We also served 8,596 meals to those age 85 and older.


Our clients benefit from our services in a number of ways. Our congregate meal program provides low cost nutritional support to the over 60 population of Natrona County, especially those at risk identified annually through individual surveys. We provide quality activity programs and information and referral for educational or self help purposes. We offer assistance, assessment and referral for those seeking home care services and respite care. We also provide weekly wellness clinics to screen for high blood pressure, other potential health problems and referrals to other services as needed.

Awards and Honors


Central Wyoming Senior Services is a Pace Setter for United Way (100% employee participation in the giving campaign). We also sponsored a study of Baby Boomers in Casper Wyoming which received an award in December 2008. CWSS has the normal food service licensing since we are a congregate meal site.
