Aspen Hope Center

A nonprofit organization

The Aspen Hope Center is in need of expanding the number of clinicians to meet the needs of the community requests. Our quality of services has always been exemplary and to uphold this expansion is required. Schools are requesting assistance, teens and adolescents are calling more frequently.


I found the Hope Center in a time of deepest need and it wasn't until I hit rock bottom that I knew I needed to call. It's rare to feel like a stranger truly cares about your wellbeing, but they have a knack for making you feel that way. It is like having the ultimate local in your corner. There are a lot of awesome things I've been through in my life, but I'll never forget the moment I went through their doors, it made all the difference in my life.
Derrick McFarland, Carbondale Resident

I wouldn't be here today if it weren't for the Hope Center. They were there for me during the hardest time and I had a friend pick up the phone and call them for me. But, their work doesn't end with a phone call; they are constantly there, day or night.

It is so common to hear how hard it is to talk to someone about your stress, but once you do, it can change your life; and that is the point of the Hope Center, it changes lives.
Christie Henderson, Basalt Resident

Several years ago my six-month old daughter died of SIDS. I have no words to express that feeling of emptiness that began to take root in my life. It wasn't until I walked through the doors of the Hope Center that I truly started to heal. It was there that I realized the depth of their ability to reach out to anyone in emotional crisis; loss of a loved one, stress in relationships, employment or financial struggles or any life crisis where you may feel overwhelmed. Maybe you have no idea why you don't want to get out of bed in the morning, but you don't. We all need to support one another; and that's what the Hope Center does. They offered me a safe place to process my grief, provided priceless counseling and coping tools and taught me that no one should ever go it alone.
Kristin Koehler, Snowmass Village Resident


Our mission is to extend a beacon of hope to those in emotional crisis and offer a continuum of comprehensive care while steadfastly working to decrease the stigma of mental illness through expert clinical treatment, public education, community collaboration and outreach.
