"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed."

BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB OF THE BIG HORNS

58 North Adams, Buffalo, WY 82834
Phone:  (307) 684-9908

     The Community Resource Center of Johnson County (CRC) is very proud of the part it played in bringing the Boys & Girls Club of the Big Horns (B&GC) to Johnson County. The CRC, after meeting with community leaders, formed a committee to identify the risk factors that increase the likelihood that youth engage in problem behaviors, and the protective factors that buffer youth from these risk factors and promote healthy lifestyle. After studying several programs that address decreasing the risk factors while increasing the protective factors, the Boys & Girls Clubs of America rose to the top of the list.
 

     The CRC, as the lead agency in this endeavor, applied for and received the 21st Century State Incentive Grant, which funded the beginning of the Boys & Girls Club of the Big Horns in March, 2003. Since then, the CRC has received federal funding for the B&GC from the Office of Juvenile Programs, and continued funding from the State of Wyoming Departments of Education and Substance Abuse.  Local foundations including the Homer and Mildred Scott Foundation, Pacifico Corporation, the Littler Fund, Daniels Fund, JC Penney Afterschool Foundation, and the Edna McConnell Clark Foundation have also assisted in sustaining the Club’s programs.  This type of community advocacy is a prime example of how the CRC works to bring needed resources to the county.
