LSR Mission Statement: 
It is our mission to provide training and support to individuals with disabilities so they may achieve maximum potential for self-reliance and active participation in the community. 

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.  We replaced all of the carpeting at our John Hancock home with vinyl planking.  The new flooring looks great and makes for a lot easier cleanup when accidents happen.  The paved parking in front of John Hancock was also expanded for staff parking and a side walk added to allow for staff and clients to have safer access to vehicles.  The day programming building received a new metal roof on the west wing to address water leakage that had been occurring.   

LSR’s thrift store located at the 1038 South Washington had another successful year.  LSR continues to employ individuals with disabilities at the LSR Thrift Store.  LSR is very appreciative of the local community and their generous support for the store.  Customers have commented on how clean and nice smelling the store is compared to other thrift stores they have shopped in.  Gross revenue from the thrift store for the fiscal year was $87,647. 

LSR’s storage building located at 720 Adams, Afton, received some much needed attention.  The building is used to store seasonal Thrift Store donations and equipment used at LSR.  Thomas Skinner took on the task as an Eagle Scout Project.  With assistance from his troop and family the storage building received a much needed new coat of paint.   

The Afton day programming facility received a makeover with new vinyl planking flooring installed in the entire day room.  The Oakwood residential home also received new flooring throughout the entire home.  A tile carpet was installed and clients were able to select the color of flooring they wanted in their bedrooms.  The front ramp at Oakwood was also rebuilt with a roof installed over the ramp to help prevent snow and rain from making the ramp slick.
