is to extend a beacon of hope to those in emotional crisis and offer a continuum of comprehensive care while steadfastly working to decrease the stigma of mental illness through expert clinical care, public education, community collaboration and outreach.
Starting October 1st, Hope Center Eagle River Valley is officially open 24/7, 365! The Hope Center was created in the Roaring Fork Valley in 2010 in an effort to address the unmet needs of people in the Roaring Fork Valley. A 24/7 HopeLine was initiated and answered by a local crisis team, which was designed to be mobile and meet the person where they were. Lastly, and with the most impact, the Stabilization Program was designed. This program is an alternative to inpatient hospitalization, where individuals may remain in their home with loved ones and friends to support them while receiving specialized, wrap-around services from local practitioners and agencies.community will be welcomed. These individuals will be ambassadors to bring information to the table and disseminate information to the public.
In September of 2017, local law enforcement and other community partners sought out the Hope Center and asked about partnership possibilities. Nine months later, with seed money and immense community support, we are thrilled to introduce the Hope Center Eagle River Valley.
The Hope Center includes crisis response, management and stabilization efforts to a new area that is asking for support for their community. Partnerships with Eagle County Paramedic Services, Eagle County Sheriff’s Office, Eagle Police Department, Avon Police Department, Vail Police Department, SpeakUp ReachOut, other community entities and more are growing and strengthening everyday. Office space has been donated, seed money given and we hope to be up and running by early fall.
The entire mission of the Hope Center is to SUPPORT THE COMMUNITY IN THE COMMUNITY. We are part of this community, and want it to be as healthy and connected as it can possible.
