Group Publishing Youth Care Award!

We are excited to share that we have been blessed to receive the 2017 Group Publishing Youth Care Award!  This $1000 gift supports the opportunity for us to create pathways using Repurposed Materials between barns.  This will make Guided Hope more accessible to anyone needing more solid footing, walking canes, or wheelchair accessibility to enjoy our animals and family time together.  If you would like to volunteer to help with this project in the spring, please contact Kaarin Scoma at kaarinscoma@guidedhope.org or 303-898-5567.  Thank you, Group Publishing!

Board of Director Member Needed

Guided Hope has been blessed with five wonderful, committed board members, some of whom have been with us since our inception in 2012!  With the assistance of Ken Schuetz of Aligned Influence, we are fortunate to have a strong governing policy by which board responsibilities are clearly defined.   We are seeking a new board candidate who is interested in “Directing, Protecting, and Enabling” our organization. Our Executive Director, Kaarin Scoma, will continue with her responsibilities to “Lead, Manage, and Accomplish,” the goals of the board.  Please contact Kaarin at 303-898-5567 or kaarinscoma@guidedhope.org for information or to recommend someone.    Thank you for prayerfully considering this important need!

Time to put up hay!

Wow!  What an amazing summer we had!  We had hundreds of people join us as guests, ranch hands, and Wrangler volunteers!  Kids and parents alongside grandmas and grandpas of all ages got to work.  From spring arrivals of Nigerian Dwarf babies and fluffy chicks to the excitement of first time riders and returning families, we shared the chores and play together.  The Hope Trail is up and running!  Learning and fun await our guests with numerous interactive stations.  We look forward to sharing the season with you through pictures and stories in our upcoming newsletter.

The horses need hay!  We need help putting up 500 bales of hay this weekend.  Are you available on Monday, September 4th, at 1:00?  Join us for an hour or several.  All ages of Ranch Hands welcome.  Jeans, long sleeves, tennis shoes or boots, and gloves recommended.  (We have some available as well.)  Please let us know you’re coming.

Open Ranch Day Highlights!

Over 170 guests and volunteers enjoyed a day of fun in the sun together!  Although we had a snowstorm the day before, Praise God that Sunday afternoon was brimming with new and returning Guided Hope friends.  Kids and adults enjoyed horseback rides.  Baby goats got lots of hugs.  New chicks came out to play.  Llamas showed off their fiber.  Ace archers flew arrows.  Painters decorated barn boards and birdhouses for our new Hope Trail.  Not to mention cupcake decorating for Butterscotch’s birthday!  Many thanks to our amazing volunteers who gave their time and energy to keep everything safe and fun!  It was a blessed day.  We hope to see many families returning for summer Roundups!
