About Bringing our Valley HOPE

Who we are...

Bringing our Valley HOPE (formerly BV HOPE) was launched in 2014 because of the increasing danger of human trafficking in the United States. We now educate Chaffee County, Colorado citizens to help prevent trafficking in our communities. Our efforts are mainly concentrated on school-aged children. We also work with adults, parents, grandparents, teachers, first responders, department of human services, hotels and the medical community. Recently we have expanded these efforts to other nearby communities.

We welcome new volunteers! You can choose one of the many ways to help.
