About HopeWest

Created through a community-wide vision, our founders recognized the need for comprehensive, expert, and collaborative care for those facing serious illness and grief. HopeWest is a nonprofit, 501 ( c )( 3 ) organization serving western Colorado in Mesa, Delta, Montrose, Ouray and Rio Blanco counties.

We cared for 81 patients and their families in 1993 – our first year of operation. Today, we serve more than 7,000 square miles with five offices and a state-of-the-art HopeWest Hospice Care Center. With a staff of 375 and more than 1,300 volunteers, we provide care to more than 2,500 patients and well-over 1,500 individuals coping with grief every year in the counties we serve.

We are so much more than a hospice or health care organization. We have grown and expanded services to become a national respected model for creative and effective hospice and palliative care delivered in private homes, skilled nursing facilities, assisted-living facilities and our own Hospice Care Center.

We provide extensive bereavement services for people of all ages. Adults receive individual counseling, grief education and group support. HopeWest Kids is the only program of its kind in western Colorado providing an extensive array of creative grief services, such as: Itty bitty Camp for preschoolers, Camp Good Grief for older children and Teen Retreats for teens, equestrian therapy, and grief support groups in all grade schools, middle schools and high schools across the region.

We are woven into the communities we serve through our Board of Directors, Foundation Board and Advisory Boards in every community where we have an office. Philanthropy is key to helping support the mission and is raised through grants, individual and corporate gifts, events and support from our retail businesses – Spoons bistro & bakery, Heirlooms for Hospice, Charmed by Heirlooms and Artful Cup. Our unique retail outlets help to support our mission through the generosity of the communities we serve.
