The U.S Depart­ment of Health and Human Services, Admin­is­tra­tion for Children and Families, Office of Family Assis­tance and the Promising Pathways Ini­tia­tive, named CLIMB Wyoming as one of the nation’s ten best programs helping to move people out of poverty.

CLIMB was iden­ti­fied for its inno­v­a­tive approach as a high-performing orga­ni­za­tion in this field. This national recog­ni­tion is a result of  CLIMB’s con­sis­tent outcomes, evidence-based model design, sophis­ti­cated data col­lec­tion and ability to utilize data to drive and improve program decisions.

Since 1986, CLIMB Wyoming has trained and placed low-income single mothers in careers that suc­cess­fully support their families. The orga­ni­za­tion, founded in Cheyenne by Ray Fleming Dinneen, has helped more than 1,300 families across the state into long-term economic security and self-sufficiency.
