About the Parker Project

Valley Hope seeks to invest $12 million into an expansion and renovation of the Parker, Colorado, residential addiction treatment center. The campaign serves to develop a portion of the funding for the expansion, with a working goal of $2.5 million. 

The treatment center has a waiting list for admission due to demand for services and a lack of recovery room detoxification (detox) beds. General overcrowding is evident in all areas of the center including the admissions center, dining hall, lecture hall, therapy rooms, community rooms, and parking. 

The Parker Project will expand the center and improve efficiencies of treatment services. The facility will receive a fresh face along with relief from the current cramped conditions. The Parker Project will reduce the waiting lists for admission, help more people, improve safety, and provide privacy and comfort for all patients. 

BUILDING HOPE serves to communicate the need for expanded Valley Hope treatment services in Colorado. Your charitable gifts provide Valley Hope the resources to extend hope to thousands struggling with alcohol and drug addiction. 

The PARKER PROJECT CAMPAIGN is Valley Hope’s first-ever capital campaign in Colorado.

“We cannot allow more people to put their recovery on a waiting list and risk losing their lives when the solution is at our fingertips. We want to be a part of the solution, but we don’t have the space.” 

Steve Knuth, President/CEO, Valley Hope Association

“The current detox area and nursing station is cramped, noisy, and there is little privacy for anxious patients. There aren’t enough restrooms, or workspaces, or storage areas.“ 

Micki Gallagher, Clinical Program Director, Valley Hope of Parker

“We are years behind in being able to serve this community and help those in search of our services.” 

Tom Lolley, Chairman, Board of Directors, Valley Hope Association
