HOPE of the Grand Valley is a local nonprofit that was founded in 2009. Our mission is to provide support and a hand up to hard-working parents that make too much to qualify for government assistance but 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.”
The main project HOPE of the Grand Valley is currently trying to raise funds for a property in Fruita, Colorado, that will be used to help first-time moms and families who are not on public assistance.
The goal of this property is to help educate and counsel these individuals, and to provide assistance until they have saved enough money to get on more solid financial ground.
