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
This past year at our Evanston service locations we continued to have several facility improvements. A new concrete
driveway was installed at John Hancock and the side lawn was removed and concrete installed for additional parking and to
try and prevent water from seeping into the basement. An additional storage shed was installed at the main Evanston office.
More vinyl flooring was installed at Champs and the Day Hab rooms. The apartments in the back building at Morse Lee
received vinyl planking flooring and the hallway was leveled prior to new vinyl planking being installed.
In Kemmerer a new deck was installed on the back of the home greatly increasing accessibility for clients and staff. The
cement wheelchair on the front of the home was also replaced.
In our Afton location new vinyl plank flooring was installed in the two bathrooms, kitchen, entrance, and office area at our
Oakwood home. A new heating/air conditioning unit was installed for a section of the main office in Afton. The same area
also received new LED lighting.
LSR’s thrift store located at the 1038 South Washington had an outstanding year. Donations from the local community
continued to increase this past year and customer visits have continued to increase during the year. LSR employed four
staff during the summer to meet the needs of the customers. Gross revenue from the thrift store for the fiscal year was
$110,908. This amount was up from the prior year by $18,512.
LSR implemented modified programming services during the fiscal year as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. LSR has been
fortunate during the year to not lose any clients or staff to the virus even though we have had several clients and staff
contract the virus. The pandemic has had a significant impact on program activities and has limited some activities LSR
usually conducts during the year.
