3Hopeful Hearts provides bereaved parents and families opportunities to honor, find hope, and seek healing through grief companionship.
As 3Hopeful Hearts expanded and more community members began to request our services, we realized the need to formalize our operations. In 2011, in-kind donations allowed us to establish office space and develop a website. We received our 501(c)3 designation from the IRS in December, 2012 and remain in good standing. In June of 2020, 3Hopeful Hearts opened the doors to The Center for Hope in Fort Collins, Colorado. We have placed 7 outstanding individuals on our Board of Directors who meet monthly. 3Hopeful Hearts is poised to directly influence the improvement of compassionate care throughout northern Colorado. While 3Hopeful Hearts has grown beyond what we could ever have imagined, our work continues to be inspired by this mission: 3Hopeful Hearts provides bereaved parents and families opportunities to honor, find hope, and seek healing through grief companionship.
"This 3Hopeful Hearts seminar was intense, emotional and amazing! I am so appreciative of the people who put this together but most of all the parents who came to share their stories. These are very difficult things for most people to talk about and I want to say thank you and I'm sorry for your losses to all of them again." RE: Parent Panel
"I want to thank you for all you did tonight. The tribute was everything that we could have ever needed and more. I was so surprised by the number of families that came! I think that you were able to provide some great healing, honoring, and closure for the families. As always, I am amazed at your grace and your work. Please let me know if there is ever any way that I (or we as unit at PVH) can help you..." RE: The Candlelight Tribute
"3 Hopeful Hearts and the Walk to Remember have made such a difference. They gave us a place to share sorrow and support friends and family. They gave us words to express what we couldn't say. And perhaps most importantly, they provided meaning that I will carry with me always. One of the most significant parts of the walk was that it gave a forum for families to share their loss. It is rare to find an event that provides an opportunity for all of us to grieve together. They are a valuable and much-needed resource in our community." RE: Walk to Remember.
"I have been working as a physician for 10 years with an additional four years in residency, and today's opportunity to hear directly from patients who have experienced this type of loss has been one of my most meaningful educational experiences. I thank you for your courage to tell your stories and I encourage you to take these panel presentations to other health care providers such as emergency room staff, surgery centers, hospitals, etc. I think everyone could benefit from your message about what this type of grief is all about."
