Supporting YCAN

The work of the Yellowstone Country Assistance Network is made possible by grants and the generosity of our community supporters. Every contribution you make supports the Yellowstone Country Assistance Network and our mission directly!

Every day we work with individuals and families from all walks of life. Some have lost their job due to business or industry closures, some are overcoming addictions, others are transitioning from domestic violence shelters on their own for the first time.

We see seniors in need of glasses or dentures and children whose families can’t afford school supplies or afterschool activities. We have cancer and critically ill patients who need gas vouchers to go to medical appointments Billings, Denver, or Utah. Families who experience flooding or house fires are in need of clothing to return to school and work. This is all a typical day at our organization, but for the individuals in crisis they will never forget this day, and how we respond can be life-changing.

Families and individuals living on the poverty line are often one emergency away from a major financial crisis. Our grant-funded programs help to cover the major essential services like rent assistance, security deposits, utilities, doctor payments, vision screenings, dental visits, car repairs, etc. Your donations can help us go above and beyond for these families!

Why Donate?

While our grants provide a tremendous amount of support to the Big Horn Basin we still have areas of unmet needs, or areas that are not allowable under our grant contracts, that is where donations come in. Our grants have very specific income requirements and sometimes families in need are over that threshold but still have an immediate need.

Ways You Can Donate

Giving takes many shapes including volunteering your time; In-kind donations of goods, services, or expertise; Cause Marketing a taxable contribution in exchange for advertising; peer-to-peer fundraising, or by simply making a donation. You can also donate unused gift cards for gas, clothing, Walmart cards help with groceries, personal hygiene, diapers, food, etc.

You can make a donation to a cause you support at YCAN:

  • Homeless Teen Initiative: Our current strategic mission is to access the scope and breadth of homeless teenagers in the Big Horn Basin. Once we know the extent of this issue we will put together a group of key stakeholders to come up with an evidence-based plan to ensure homeless teens in the Big Horn Basin have the support, and resources, to enhance health, housing, and employment status, overcome obstacles, and end economic hardship. This initiative is currently an unfunded initiative and donations will move the efforts forward.
  • Clearinghouse of Resources: You can help support our online clearinghouse of resources in the Big Horn Basin. You can provide us with resources we are missing, updated information on programs and services, or provide a monetary donation to help with the costs of maintaining the site.
