HOPE of the Grand Valley’s mission is a hand up, not a hand out, by fostering and encouraging independence and self-sufficiency for low-income families.

WMD was started by Anna and David Barrier in August 2012. At the time Anna and David were taking a leap of faith that the business would grow into the small empire it is today. Anna and David have not forgotten all their past struggles and now have committed to take a stand with Hope Of The Grand Valley.


"I've been on government assistance for 7 years. I just recently got a good job and I am loving it. But after 8 months of working here and I have lost all assistance; most recently I lost Medicaid assistance for my daughter because now a earn a little too much to qualify.

I am supposed to receive child support, but he does not pay and owes back child support as well. I don't seem to be able to catch up and I can not buy food and pay the bills. I am desperate for some help. I've even tried to get a second job with no luck. I am tired of not being able to provide for my family.

Thank you HOPE of the Grand Valley for being here for my family​"

"My name is Stephanie, and I am a single mother with two children. My struggle started in 2013 during my divorce. Here in Colorado the kids and I have no family to lean on or give us support. Though they are only a phone call away, it's not the same.

I felt alone and defenseless until I met with Hope of the Grand Valley.

Hope of they Grand Valley has helped me for the past two years in giving my children a Christmas when I was unable to. Now they have shown be me that there are many more programs provided from Hope of the Grand Valley for families that do work but still struggle to get the extra support that may be needed.

Budget Coaching and I was able to meet with a budget coach to get started on building a solid foundation for the future of my family. It didn't stop there.

As we got to know each other one on one, she noticed that some counseling would probably do my family and I some good due to the struggles that we have been through. Since then my son and I have been meeting with the Hope of the Grand Valley life skills coach.

Hope of the Grand Valley opened their arms and her heart for my family and has really made us feel more secure knowing that we have someone there for us. We are now family and I am forever thankful.

Hope of the Grand Valley thus far has provided that support and free help that my family has been without."

Thank you for all of the lives you touch,
