    • Through event entries, silent auction, and donation match from Winter Park Resort, the event raised nearly $16,000 for the Grand Foundation’s H.O.P.E. Fund.

      Since then, the H.O.P.E. Fund has launched several initiatives to support mental health and substance abuse recovery in Grand County.

      In September 2022, a new website dedicated to mental health resources was launched, and includes crisis service information, provider directory, and resources for patients and providers: www.buildinghopegrand.com.

      In November 2022, the Grand Foundation secured an office space in Winter Park to be made available at low/no cost to mental health providers to increase available providers in the county and accessibility of services.

      A grant program was initiated to support counselors maintain their practice through support for continuing education, facilitation of community support/education programs, etc.
