A hand up, not a hand out
HOPE of the Grand Valley's mission is to provide support and a hand up to hard-working parents and their children who are not receiving welfare, or housing assistance. This is a group that tends to fall through the cracks.
Hard working 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.
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.”
