Hands Across the Saddle

PO Box 129, Greybull, Wyoming 82426
We are a non-profit organization founded by Beverly and Wilford Brimley.  Our Mission is to help our friends and neighbors when they need a little “hand up”! We have assisted folks with paying rent, small medical bills, or even food for their family when life has thrown them a curveball.  

GBC will NO LONGER be handing out HATS APPLICATIONS, they will also NO LONGER be taking phone calls regarding applications. Applications for assistance will be mailed out on request or emailed out as well. If you have turned in an application, DO NOT CALL, the group will contact you, they meet the first Wednesday of each month, applications are considered at that meeting.


Wyoming Rapid Response Fund

The Wyoming Rapid Response Fund was created through a partnership with a regional foundation to fulfill their passion of providing emergency assistance such as food and clothing, rent and utility payments, transportation and funeral expenses for families and individuals in financial need.  Assistance through Rapid Response allows individuals to maintain their independence and end their downward spiral toward increased need. Volunteers of America Northern Rockies partners with law enforcement, congregations and many human service groups to identify Wyoming residents who find themselves in emergency situations.  The Wyoming Rapid Response Fund is administered by Volunteers of America Northern Rockies, and serves all counties in Wyoming.  Clients must be referred by a case manager for this program.

To get and keep Veterans off the streets, help Veterans at risk of becoming homeless, and to minimize the Veteran population in shelters the Veterans Administration has made additional funds available for Veterans living in Montana and Wyoming through the Supportive Services for Veteran Families program, operated by Volunteers of America.

Along with the funds comes temporary qualification and rule changes: re-enrolment of Veterans previously exited from the program, a temporary waving of the enrollment limitation length, changes to the limitations for transitional accommodations before permanent housing is found, and an allowance for a COVID-19 friendly remote intake process.
