HOPE of the Grand Valley is a local Mesa County nonprofit that was founded in 2008. Our mission is to provide support and a hand up to hard-working parents that still find it hard to make ends meet at times. “This is a group that tends to fall through the cracks,” states Founder and Executive Director, Vicki McGee. “That’s why we provide a hand up, not a hand out to these local families.”
Hope of the Grand Valley provides a hand up, not a hand out; by fostering and encouraging independence for hardworking, low-income families.
HOPE of the Grand Valley was founded in the Grand Valley to fill in a very specific gap in our community.
"This program gives HAND UPS not HAND OUTS; You give a poor man a fish and you feed him for a day. You teach him to fish and you give him an occupation that will feed him for a lifetime." (Chinese proverb.) Great classes, support and people running the program."
We are fortunate to serve ever-increasing numbers of hard-working, low-income families. This segment of the population is growing, yet typically over looked and often struggling. Children with parents that are making a little too much money to qualify for government assistance. We are here to give a hand up to parents who are working tirelessly, paying their bills, and doing everything in their power to provide their children with food, clothing, and shelter without public assistance.
Our families are given the opportunity to take advantage of the many services and programs we have available. We have families that have been able to purchase their first home, and many more are close to reaching that goal as well!
HOPE of the Grand Valley is here for families as they walk through life. We have found that providing guidance creates a clearer path to a more prosperous and successful future, and in turn, allows HOPE of the Grand Valley to continue our journey of helping those who just need a hand up.
Hard-working, low-income families, are a segment of the population that is growing. Yet they are typically over looked and often struggling. We have experienced a significant surge in needs from families who need practical help to remain self-sustaining. We are always in need of monthly financial commitments to continue our efforts in helping these families not only stay off government assistance; but to become successful.
This is a proven means to break the cycle of poverty for many families - forever!
Hope of the Grand Valley families do not receive government assistance,
and neither do we.
Your donations are need and appreciated!!!
