“My interest in forming a Community Resource Center is rooted in my family history. My mother’s family lost their farm and livelihood during widespread bank foreclosures during the Depression. My father’s family immigrated from Mexico. His parents and siblings spent many seasons working in the sugar beet fields in Idaho Falls and Teton Valley before moving to the mining town of Eureka in Utah. It took a lot ofhard work and overcoming challenges that were out of their control to become successful individuals. I’m grateful for their work ethic. I want to find a way to help others rise out of poverty.”

Community Resource Center provides that important connection for our community members to the services that support and advocate for them to better able to be contributing members of our community. “I see the Community Resource Center being an important advocate, link and supporter that connects those in need with the services in our community.”
Susie Work, Treasurer
Susie Work was raised in the east but has lived in Teton Valley for over 16 years . Most of her married life was spent raising her three kids and following her husband to his different job locations. She has a key role in the start of five non-profit organizations, from Egypt to the Teton Valley, including the Community Foundation of Teton Valley nine years ago. Wherever she has lived, she has been an active volunteer in the community, believing that building a strong community benefits everyone! Clearly the joy of being involved was a reward unto itself. She started working toward creating a community resources center after a needs assessment conducted by the Community Foundation in 2010 indicated coordinated care as a pressing need in the community. “I cannot tell you how excited I am to be part of this organization and to actually see the dream come to fruition! I hope that with coordination and follow up, we can now move from applying bandaids to people’s problems to actually improving their lives.”
