New Update Re: COVID-19
We believe that everyone deserves to have access to assistance for food and essentials, especially in times of uncertainty. We're working diligently to assist you with your needs, so we're temporarily adjusting our office protocol. We will be keeping our doors locked during normal office hours (T-F, 9am-5pm) and will allow clients in by appointment only.
If you need assistance with food, personal essentials, gas to get to work or appointments there are a few different ways we can still help.
Go to our website, http://www.sweetwaterfamilyresourcecenter.com to download and print off an application and follow the instructions on the first few pages.
Call us if you need to pick up an application.
Call us to make an appointment and/or to discuss types of assistance we have available and for other referrals which can assist you.
Our Family Visitation and Exchange offices are currently operating under the usual hours set by our employees and clients. If you have a visit or exchange and are feeling sick or have been exposed, or traveled to an area of high exposure PLEASE CALL to reschedule.
We are here to help in any way we can and will do our best to work with you.
Thank you for your understanding,
The Sweetwater Family Resource Center Staff

Sweetwater Family Resource Center receives two grants from the United Way of Southwest Wyoming
July 1, 2019 - United Way of Southwest Wyoming has awarded the Sweetwater Family Resource Center grants for two programs with measurable outcomes that fill community needs in Sweetwater County.
The Family Visitation Program will receive a $23,900 grant. This program works toward helping children to spend more time with non-custodial parents or other significant adults in their lives, and to maintain positive relationships with those adults. Supervised visits and exchanges work to reduce conflict between adults surrounding visitation issues, and improve safety.
The Family Independence Program will receive a $60,000 grant. This program assists income-eligible people in Sweetwater County with rent, utilities, fuel to get to work or school, and furnace and hot water heater expenses. It helps participants to maintain adequate housing and avoid homelessness during a financially difficult time.
We are extremely grateful to the United Way of Southwest Wyoming. This funding will help people who live in our community and who have emergency needs.
