Welcome to NOWCAP Services website and we hope that the information you find here is both informational about who we are and insightful about what we do. NOWCAP Services is a mission based organization with our mission statement being "Creating Opportunities For All People With Disabilities!" Our programs as you will see are very diverse in not only the businesses and services we are involved in but the people we support as well.
Northwest Community Action Programs (NOWCAP) of Wyoming, Inc. was incorporated in 1965 as one of the very first community action agencies in the country to combat poverty as part of the country's "Great Society" initiative launched during that time. Over the years NOWCAP of Wyoming, Inc. has grown and diversified into one of the more complex and multi-faceted human service agencies in Wyoming. NOWCAP is or has been the sponsoring agency for programs such as traditional, migrant, and early childhood Head Start, Parents as Teachers, Foster Grandparent, Migrant Health, housing preservation, home weatherization, Community Service Block Grants (CSBG) for emergency assistance and many others.
NOWCAP of Wyoming, Inc. was selected in 1985 to become a provider of services for people with disabilities in Natrona County, Wyoming and thus NOWCAP Services was born. As the organization began to grow, new and different supportive services of the program were started. Examples of these include community based services, commercial ventures, community employment, residential support options and building natural supports in and around the community as a whole for people with disabilities.
Today, NOWCAP Services employs approximately 90 people and provides supportive services in Casper and Rock Springs. NOWCAP Services provides supportive housing options, active and meaningful day services and intensive supportive living services. We also engage in private commercial ventures to create work opportunities for the people we support regardless of their disability.
