On August 17, Valley Hope launched the Building Hope Parker Project Campaign to expand the organization’s addiction treatment capacity in Colorado.
The project aims to raise funds for a 16-bed detox unit and an addition of 20,000 square feet of space to the Valley Hope residential treatment center in Parker, which consistently has a waiting list to admit new patients.
Since 1989, Valley Hope of Parker has established a strong legacy in Colorado as a trusted nonprofit provider of addiction treatment and recovery support. Valley Hope offers a full continuum of services, from detox, residential, outpatient and continuing care.
The treatment center has a waiting list for admission due to demand for services and a lack of recovery room detoxification beds. Valley Hope is committed to a $12 million expansion and renovation of the center.
The fundraising campaign for the project serves to develop a portion of the funding for the expansion, with a goal of $2.5 million. To date, one million has been contributed by Colorado funders:
The Daniels Fund has pledged $500,000 to the campaign. The Daniels Fund, established by cable television pioneer Bill Daniels, is a private charitable foundation dedicated to making life better for the people of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming through its grants program, scholarship program, and ethics initiative.
The Recovery Foundation has pledged $200,000 to the building project campaign AND gifted another $50,000 for scholarships for the underprivileged. The Recovery Foundation’s mission is to support other publicly supported organizations that address mental health issues focused on substance abuse in Colorado including education, prevention, and treatment.
Several other gifts have been received, including support from The Anschutz Foundation.
The expansion and renovation will reduce the waiting lists for admission, help more people, improve safety, and provide privacy and comfort for all patients. Groundbreaking will commence in 2021, with completion of the project in 2023. Valley Hope will continue serving patients and families during the four-phases of the construction project.
