Cheyenne is the capital of Wyoming with a population of around 53,000, and is the largest city in the state. In 1867, Cheyenne was platted by General Grenville M. Dodge for construction of the Union Pacific Railroad.1 The construction of the railroad brought people into the city and it became known as the Magic City of the Plains because it sprang up overnight. However, with the continued construction of the railroad to the west, some of the residents uprooted and headed that way. Those that stayed in the area were joined by different types of residents who may have been less than idealistic residents for the city, such as displaced cowboys, transient railroad gangs, thieves, and gamblers. The city was named after the Native American Cheyenne Nation, which was the most prominent in the Great Plains area.

According to the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), about 12% of the adult homeless population in the United States are veterans.2 Veterans that served during the Vietnam Era and had posttraumatic stress disorder have a greater chance of becoming indigent.3 Since Cheyenne is home to F.E. Warren Air Force Base, there are thousands of active duty and discharged veterans in the area. The VA in Cheyenne offers the Health Care for Homeless Veterans Program to ensure the area's veterans don't fall through the cracks. The program offers treatment and case management to Veterans of all wars. The VA has a goal to completely end Veteran homelessness by the year 2015.

Current Initiatives

The Wyoming Meth Project seeks to address the overwhelming problems that methamphetamines present to residents of Cheyenne and the state of Wyoming. The project focuses most of its efforts on public service messaging, community outreach programs, and directing public policy. The project's prevention-based programs educate the public about the dangers of meth and provide access to resources for those who have become addicted. School-based programs have proven particularly effective for helping curb meth usage among children and teens. To find out more about the Wyoming Meth Project, call 307-268-7136.5
