A Note from Our New Executive Director
Dear friends and neighbors,
I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the warm welcome I’ve received in my new role at One22! It should have come as no surprise, however, because as a community member and collaborative partner in my previous work at Community Safety Network I’ve been long-aware of the spirit of compassion and generosity associated with One22 and the three legacy organizations. It’s a thrill to be a part of this spirit, and to have this opportunity to build and grow essential services in order to keep our community healthy, whole and vibrant.
I arrived at One22 on May 1 to find a committed and skilled staff, who make it a pleasure to come to work every day. My job will be to build an organization that is as worthy and strong as their heroic service. Together, we have lots of work to do and I look forward to sharing our progress with you.
Most importantly, every single day we must keep a clear path for those who seek the services they need to survive and thrive: language access and interpretation, emergency assistance and advocacy, Latino services, and community outreach.
Your support and enthusiasm are fundamental to One22's success. So too has been the hard work of the many ground-breaking leaders at all levels who started, grew, and shepherded these services through the challenges of the past decade. Having spoken to many past staff and board members, I know their service has been an act of gratitude for this community they love. And I, in turn, thank them... and you!
I hope you will reach out to me with any questions or insights you have. Wishing you a happy, healthy and safe summer,
Sharel Lund Love

June Service Highlights
Language Access Program
Following the legacy of the former El Puente, One22 provides verbal interpretation services so that limited English-speaking members of our community can communicate effectively with healthcare provider in private practice, clinic, and hospital settings. Here is a look at June 2017:
Emergency Assistance & Latino Service
All three predecessor organizations, Community Resource Center, Latino Resource Center, and El Puente provided client assistance with a variety of specialties. Today at One22 a unified case management team coordinates services for better outcomes. Across the board our goal is to help manage and/or prevent crisis through proactive planning and personal consultation and advocacy.

Because of your support 116 Kids will Attend Camp through our Summer Scholarship Program!
Thanks to generous donations from the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole, St. John’s Episcopal Church, Rocky Mountain Bank, the Elks Club, Jackson Hole Lions Club, and numerous private donors, One22 has sent 116 kids to day camp this summer. The Unified Teton County Summer Scholarship Fund, a restricted fund managed and administered by One22 in coordination with Teton County Library, provides funding for local children at risk for significant summer learning loss to have the opportunity to participate in summer enrichment programs. Since 2010, the program has given our most vulnerable students a chance to participate in programs and activities that can help them enter the school year as engaged and prepared students. Participating camps include Teton County Parks and Recreation’s Camp Jackson, Art Association of Jackson Hole, Teton Science Schools, Presbyterian Church of Jackson Hole’s Camp JOY, Vertical Harvest, and Jackson Hole Children’s Museum.

What Are The Needs of Teton County Youth?
One22 launches study funded by the Laura Jane Musser Fund
It is rare for an organization to have an opportunity to build a youth education program from the ground up and directly inspired by current need. That is why we are especially excited to announce that One22 received an $18,800 grant from the Laura Jane Musser Fund to help plan and develop a comprehensive research project that will uncover the needs of underserved youth in our community, and where gaps in services may exist. This data-driven, first-hand analysis will be used by One22 and our larger non-profit community to design, improve, and implement youth programming.
