Teton County will hold a community forum Wednesday to learn more about residents’ human services needs and priorities, such as mental health, child care and food security.

The forum is set for 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in Teton County Library’s Ordway Auditorium and is open to all.

In July, the town and county hired consultants to draft a human service and resource allocation plan, a strategy to help guide officials’ decisions about funding human service organizations.

Now, a county release said, “We want to hear from community members about your perspective on human service needs and priorities.”

Attendees will be entered into a raffle for a $50 gift card. Information and an online survey are available at TetonCountyWY.gov/HumanServicesPlan.
