Mission: HOPE of the Grand Valley's mission is to provide support and a hand up to hard-working parents and their children. This is a group that tends to fall through the cracks, making too much to qualify for government assistance, but working hard nonetheless to try to get ahead. It's a situation that creates an uncertain future. By partnering with HOPE of the Grand Valley, these parents, infants, and children will be able to achieve better outcomes and a more stable future
a non-profit organization that offers supportive services for our working under employed with children.
HANDY WORKS, LLC. When you are struggling just to pay the rent and because you are working you can't get help from governmental agencies, where do you turn? Or, if you are a single mom and just need a little guidance and training in the basics, who can help? STONEHAVEN will give these people that hand up that they so desperately need to become contributing members of society and keep them off of government assistance. At Handy Works, we believe that God has a plan for all of us and part of that plan is simply helping where we can.
Ron and Mary Eisenman We believe in HOPE of the Grand Valley because it is focusing on hard working families/single parents in our community that want a" hand up and not a hand out." We believe that we have a much stronger community when we take responsibility for our neighbors in need and can assist them in helping themselves to stay off government assistance when possible. We have many very generous people in our community and hope of the grand valley is another way for us to partner with our finances, skills and talents to help our community.
This is the passion of HOPE of the Grand Valley- to meet needs, walk alongside our neighbors, to shine that light in a dark place and let everyone know that there is always hope.
We at Your HOA Team believe in Hope of the Grand Valley because we know secure families are the foundation of good communities.

I wanted to take a moment and thank you for what you and your organization does for families here in the Grand Valley. I especially appreciate the fact that Hope of the Grand Valley concentrates on hard working families and single parents that are not just looking for a ‘handout but a handup”. We are all aware that bad things can happen to good people and I truly respect those people that have experienced adversity and are working to improve their situation. Providing assistance to these deserving people is a definate need and I am thankful that we here at our locally owned and operated Timberline Bank are in a position to contibute.

“God has blessed us so much. It is our desire to give back to those less fortunate. If it were not for the grace of God we would find ourselves in the same situation. We wish we could give more to such a worthy cause.”

“There are many families that are struggling to get by now. They are the working poor. They want to take care of their families, but sometimes they need a little help. If every business, church or individual here in the Grand Valley would commit to helping out each month I think you would see more people moving towards being self sufficient instead of going on the system to survive. I also see the increase in our suicide rates here in Mesa County a real red flag that there are many that have given up hope. That is why we feel very strongly that Hope of the Grand Valley is so important. I do thank God for loving us and meeting our needs. Often he brings people into our lives who need to see God's love and care. This gives us an opportunity to do that.”

“As a pastor in Grand Junction, it's not hard to learn that there are people in our community falling through some cracks in getting the support they need to find hope and a better way of life. However, it can be very hard to know who the people are and work with them directly to get what they desperately need! That's why I, and my congregation love supporting Hope of the Grand Valley. Vicki and her volunteers are in the places and relationships where the people need her to be in order to get assistance.
I trust Vicki explicitly to carry out her God-given purpose in helping our neighbors. We will continue backing HOPE with our funding, facilities, and relationships so that HOPE can continue serving God's people in need

"Hope of the Grand Valley fills an important niche - helping families whose situations are fully out-of-the-ordinary, and often disturbingly tragic - and does so with genuine compassion for people and love of God." Illene Roggensack, Third Sector Innovations
My husband and I believe that as Christians, we are supposed to give back to our community. For us, tithing is a monthly reminder of whom our blessings come from, and a reminder of our responsibility to give back as much as we can. We give to Hope because it is a Christ centered charity, focused on helping families and single moms get on their feet. We like that our money stays here in the Valley, and that HOPEfully, each person touched by the charity will come to know and love Jesus! –Tamme Bishop Stover
Vicki, I salute these people that are trying to make the best of their situation by providing for themselves instead of depending on government to do it for them. It's not always easy, but to know you CAN do it is satisfying to the soul. My husband and I did it when times were very tough and nobody to turn to and taught our children to be good workers and 'dig deep' when times were tough. It has paid off greatly. We will be happy to give a hand up to these people doing it on their own by adopting a family. Thank you for the concern you have for others.
