Sharing Loss and Celebrating Hope

We hope you enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!  We are reflecting on an amazing year of Roundups serving hundreds of children, adults, and families and eager to share stories in our end of year news.  We are grateful for volunteers and financial donations that keep our programs free of charge and look forward to 2019!

We have two important things to share with you.

First, we are grieving the loss of our beloved Butterscotch.  At 31 years of age, he lived a full, wonderful life, serving hundreds of kids who have learned to love, trust, hope, and find encouragement under his care.  We will have a special memorial blog dedicated to him.  Please share your Butterscotch pictures with us to include!   I cry as I write these words as we miss him so dearly.  Thank you, Lord, for giving him to us to launch our Guided Hope Roundups years ago.

Secondly, we invite you to celebrate at our annual […]

Sharing, Support, and Service!

We have had a busy end of summer and kick-off to fall!

Visitors to the Boulder County Fair enjoyed fun and education with our GH animal ambassadors shared by our Wrangler, Junior Wrangler, and Board of Director volunteers during the opening weekend.  Following the fair, we hosted our remaining Junior and Family Roundups for families eager to get another opportunity on the Ranch this year.  Our summer season was topped off with generous blessings of support and service!

We have a wonderful new partnership with Mission Homes, who has chosen Guided Hope as one of their 2019 Most Valuable Partners, to receive a portion of funds from their profits!
Mission Homes Colorado is a new missional home building business based in Berthoud.  Please check out their website for more information. We are thankful for their support and excited for this new partnership!

We have a new feature at the Ranch! Thank you, Adam Carlson, and your Eagle Scout team who made this special project […]
