Albany County Community Response
Sometimes Google isn't enough. When you aren't sure where to turn or even what questions to ask, a Community Resources Specialist can help you get the help you need. Visit Wyoming 2-1-1 online or simply call 2-1-1 and connect.
If you, your family, or someone you know in the community needs additional support with groceries or meals, please refer to organizations working to meet the need in Albany County. If not otherwise indicated, please call ahead for most updated hours and services.

While in line, all individuals must maintain a distance of 6 feet from one another. We also ask that you do not enter the building.

Every day one hour prior to regular hours

Laramie Mutual Aid
Please consider supporting and using Laramie Mutual Aid, created by Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources and Sustainability Coalition students. LMA is a system “for funding, volunteers, and help for any elderly or immunocompromised community member, or any family, household, or individual who could use a hand as our community slows down to stop the spread of the coronavirus.” LMA coordinates and aims to reduce replication with existing community support networks. Mutual aid is about supporting the community to care for each other, reducing the growing burden on existing support organizations, and adapting support networks based on evolving needs.
