CASPER, Wyo. — Interfaith of Natrona County is planning to move its office out of the former Roosevelt High School building, but will remain in North Casper.
Interfaith, which provides a range of emergency services to people living at or below the poverty level, will move to 919 N. Durbin St., a building that previously housed Seton House administrative space.
The official move-in date is Wednesday, June 1. Interfaith’s office will be closed from Memorial Day until it reopens in the new space, according to Executive Director Lindsey Tempest.
The move-out of its current office comes with the Casper Housing Authority putting the former Roosevelt High School building up for sale, according to Tempest.
Some of the services Interfaith provides include:
- Rent and utility assistance
- Help obtaining IDs or driver’s licenses
- Help obtaining birth certificates or other documentation
- Help filling prescriptions
- Laundry vouchers
- Household items
- Steel-toe boots and hard hats
- Gasoline for work or medical
The organization works to offer assistance to people that might not be reached through other nonprofit organizations.
“Our motto is to fill in the cracks,” Tempest said.
Interfaith’s pantry and other services at its office are available by appointment only, but Interfaith is usually able to get people in at short notice, according to Tempest. Interfaith can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or 307-235-8043.
While the organization receives a little bit of funding from the City of Casper and from the United Way of Natrona County, it is primarily funded through donations, according to Tempest. The organization recently received a grant from the Natrona Collective Health Trust (formerly the Wyoming Medical Center Foundation) and Tempest expressed gratitude for that support.
The new office space was selected because Interfaith wanted to stay in North Casper and because Interfaith will be able to rent the space from Seton House at an affordable rate, Tempest said.
