LSR, Inc. maintains CARF accreditation for Community Integration; Community Housing; Supported Living; and, Community Employment Services: Employment Supports. LSR received a Three Year Accreditation at the conclusion of our accreditation survey conducted in November 2016. LSR is scheduled for our renewal survey in November 2019.
“CARF accreditation is a process that demonstrates a provider has met standards for the quality of its services. CARF established these standards to guide providers in offering their services. CARF also uses the standards to evaluate how well a provider is servicing people and how it can improve.”

Lincoln Self Reliance, Inc. has been in operation as a Section 501 (c) (3) corporation since July 2000. LSR, Inc. maintains physical facilities in Diamondville, Kemmerer, Afton, Thayne, and Evanston Wyoming. The Administration Office is located in Afton Wyoming.
This past year at our Evanston service locations we continued to have several facility improvements. The outside landscaping at our John Hancock home was finally finished. Contractors laid grass sod at the home so clients and staff now have a lawn around the home (pic below).
Our Morse Lee home received a new sewer line from the back house to the main city line. The prior line was damaged at some point where it connects into the main city line. The east side of the Evanston day programming building received a new metal roof. And, the garage at Morse Lee received a new shingle roof. Hopefully issues we had with water leaking will be resolved now.
LSR’s thrift store located at the 1038 South Washington had another successful year. The local community continues to be very supportive of the store and customer visits have increased during the year. To help with the increased donations and shoppers a summer seasonal helper was added to the thrift store staff. LSR was able to purchase some shelving from the old Shopko store and installed the shelving in the ramp area which has greatly improved the looks of the ramp area and the amount of display space for donations. Gross revenue from the thrift store for the fiscal year was $77,727.
The Afton program was able to replace one of our wheelchair lift equipped shuttle buses with a new shuttle bus. Thanks to a matching grant of $27,000 from the Daniels Fund LSR was able to make this purchase. The new bus has been greatly appreciated by clients and staff at our Afton location (pic below).
The Thayne program added an access door in the basement between the two apartments at the Wright House. The door allows for staff to check on clients on both sides without having to go outside, which hopefully will reduce the possibility of slips/falls on the steps outside during the evening hours in the winter.
The home also had the front steps replaced on both sides.
LSR, Inc. maintains a Governance Board of five to ten members from various backgrounds and communities in Lincoln County.
