HOPE of the Grand Valley
P.O. Box 532
Fruita, CO 81521
HOPE of the Grand Valley's mission is to provide support and a hand up to hard-working parents and their children who work and are not receiving welfare, or housing assistance.
This is a group that tends to fall through the cracks. These are people trying to break the cycle of poverty and doing their best to get ahead.
It's a situation that creates an uncertain future for both parents and their children. HOPE of the Grand Valley aims to help these families create a more predictable and stable environment for their children.

When I heard that HOPE of the Grand Valley was a hand up instead of a hand out I knew this was something I wanted to be part of. Over the course of my life I have been lucky enough to receive help and opportunity to move forward in my life and it’s a rewarding to know that I can help create that same opportunity for people looking to move forward in their lives.

I’m passionate about Hope of the Grand Valley’s mission. I believe in lending a helping hand to those who are already working hard to help themselves. I decided to serve on the board because the people that Hope of the Grand Valley are helping are the people I want to help. I love the fact that as people are receiving assistance from Hope of the Grand Valley they are also being taught valuable life skills for their journey to self-sustainability.
Vicki McGee-Founder-CEO HOPE of the Grand Valley
My true passion is for families that are working hard to provide for their children, yet they have little to no support. I love welcoming new families, and watching them all grow into a community of their own.
Cheri LeFevre, M.Ed., LPC Life Coaching Consultant
Joined The Board of Directors because she was in strong agreement with the mission and vision to assist low-income families who were working hard and managing to stay off government programs. Cheri felt a passion to lend her skills wherever they were needed by contributing to the Board of Directors, helping with the Adopt-A-Family Christmas Program, and providing practical life skills coaching to strengthen the coping skills of struggling families.

Throughout my 50+ years in a variety of different positions in the Human Services field, I have been blessed to work with a multitude of community organizations which were devoted to providing services to those in need. Hope of the Grand Valley is the only one that is solely committed to providing a hand up to those working families who are striving to remain independent of public assistance and to continue moving forward to stablize their families. As a single mother who worked multiple jobs getting through college, I am well aware how much of a difference a little help and compassion can make when you are striving to hold your life together. I'm honored to be part of an organization such as Hope that truly makes a difference in families' lives.
