Stemming from the 2012 Teton Valley Needs Assessment, which identified gaps in health and human services in Teton Valley, the Community Foundation of Teton Valley has launched the Teton Valley Resource Directory. This directory provides one website where residents can find connections to local, state, and federal resources – from food banks, shelters, counselors, and rehabilitation centers.
