Project Hope recognizes that our continued success depends on a caring, sensitive community where we can exceed expectations by going beyond the obvious need for services by delivering these services in a confidential and safe environment, but we cannot do it without YOUR HELP!!
Your donations allow us to help survivors meet basic needs, ensure safety, and gain independence and self-sufficiency. We need financial contributions, as well as donations of items like food, clothing, hygiene items and cell phones.

Donations of Goods
We often have thoughtful members of the community who want to make donations of clothing, food, personal hygiene items furniture, appliances and other household items. Unfortunately, we have limited storage space and are not always in need of these items. Please call us at (970) 641-2712 to make sure we are able to take your items before you bring them by our office. If we are unable to accept your items at the office, you can still use them to help us, just take them to:
Boom-A-Rang will accept your clothing items. Use our account number when you drop off your donations so that our account will be credited the money (call the office for our account number). If you have never used them for consignment before, speak to one of the employees and they will explain what you need to do. This allows us to take clients in need over to the store and allow them to choose the clothing that works for them!
Six Points Thrift Store accepts clothing and household items. Please call and check to make sure that they will take your items and for donation days/times. You don’t need to do anything special, just drop your items off in the designated area. When Project Hope has clients in need of household goods/clothing Six Points issues us a voucher so the client can choose the items that they need.
Cell Phones – Ever wonder what to do with your old cell phone?
We have the answer for you! We collect used cell phones, not older than four years old, phones that we collect are turned over to a program that refurbishes them and sends us a check. The money is then used to assist clients in meeting basic needs. At this time we DO NOT need cell phones for clients, we are currently receiving a grant from Verizon Wireless to cover this need.
Items that are donated to Project Hope may be eligible for a tax deduction, please speak with a staff member when you make your donation for more information. If you have any questions, feel free to call us at any time!
