A hand up, not a hand out
"I have a true passion for our community and for parents that will do whatever it takes to provide for their children, whether that means working long hours and sometimes even more than one job. These are HOPE of the Grand Valley families. I applaud and I am in awe of these parents that are working so hard to not only providing for their children, but to make life even better for them.
In my more than 30 years in the Grand Valley, I came to realize, there is little to no help for this group of individuals. With the help of wonderful mentors and this great community, HOPE of the Grand Valley has made a significant impact in our valley. It is my great joy to welcome new families into HOPE of the Grand Valley as I have the opportunity to watch them grow and become even more successful!
What a great honor it is for me to watch them grow, and become a community of their own. I love it that our families are also our volunteers and they have become their own supporters!! It is a true privilege to celebrate their successes with them! I am truly grateful to be a part of their lives."
