Ranch on the Road

Hundreds of students were able to experience the joys of ranch life, interact with our Animal Ambassadors, and learn about the Creator with Ranch on the Road last month! What a blessing it is to mentor individuals, strengthen families, share hope, and inspire service in the community!

A HUGE thank you to our volunteer wranglers who joined us on the road! Your hard work and dedication were VERY MUCH appreciated!

Guided Hope Celebrates Berthoud Day

We had a wonderful time celebrating Berthoud Day with the community! The baby goats and Mocha, the bunny, joined our volunteers on the float. Then, we spent the afternoon sharing about Guided Hope with visitors who enjoyed some time with a few of our Animal Ambassadors. We are looking forward to summer 2022!

Grateful for Our Volunteer Friends

We are grateful for our volunteer friends who visited from out-of-state to help us once again! They spent a weekend painting the inside of our office and storage building. Thank you for the time, effort, and energy that you put into this project. Our staff and volunteers appreciate the clean, fresh space!

2021 Live Nativity!

It was a joy celebrating the birth of Christ with everyone who attended our 8th annual Live Nativity on Sunday, December 12! For the second consecutive year, we took our Animal Ambassadors on the road to Calvary Church in Longmont. Over 180 attendees were able to meet and interact with our 18 Animal Ambassadors, including goats, chickens, rabbits, sheep, mini horses, and more! With the help of our Guided Hope volunteers and animal actors, we re-enacted the Christmas story for the community with narrations in English and Spanish. After the performance, refreshments were served, including hot chocolate, apple cider, and cookies.

Over 100 amazing volunteers offered their time to share the Christmas story with the community! We are beyond thankful for our volunteers and the ability to put on this annual event. Merry Christmas!
