Hope of the Grand Valley provides a hand up not a hand out, by fostering and encouraging independence for hardworking, low income families. *”Independence” includes not receiving public assistance. Receiving healthcare insurance/coverage, childcare assistance is allowed.
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 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.
Our approach is different than most. 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.
Many times these families fall short and a hand up is all they need to move forward. The overall mission of HOPE has evolved over the years, but what remains constant is the effort to help those already working hard to brighten the future of their families.
Through HOPE of the Grand Valley, these families are given the opportunity to take advantage of the many services and programs HOPE of the Grand Valley has available, with great success!
We have families that have been able to become debt free and to purchase their first home via our budget classes. More and more are close to reaching that goal as well!
HOPE of the Grand Valley is here for our 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.
