Service opportunities!

We hope you enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends!  We were blessed with scrumptious food and relaxing fellowship.

Now…it’s on to water lines and hay!  We are excited to share that we are putting in water lines for the animals!  After six years of running hoses from the house, we are digging trenches and running hydrants.  YAY!  Strong backs welcome next Friday and Saturday, December 1-2, to dig and set up our hydrants and waterers.

The horses need hay!  We need help putting up an additional 100 bales of hay this weekend.  Are you available on Friday or Saturday, November 24-25?  Join us for an hour or two.  All ages of Ranch Hands welcome.  Jeans, long sleeves, tennis shoes or boots, and gloves recommended.  (We have some available as well.)

Please let us know you’re coming. Call or text Kaarin at 303-898-5567.

Board of Director Member Needed

Guided Hope has been blessed with five wonderful, committed board members, some of whom have been with us since our inception in 2012!  With the assistance of Ken Schuetz of Aligned Influence, we are fortunate to have a strong governing policy by which board responsibilities are clearly defined.   We are seeking a new board candidate who is interested in “Directing, Protecting, and Enabling” our organization. Our Executive Director, Kaarin Scoma, will continue with her responsibilities to “Lead, Manage, and Accomplish,” the goals of the board.  Please contact Kaarin at 303-898-5567 or for information or to recommend someone.    Thank you for prayerfully considering this important need!

Time to put up hay!

Wow!  What an amazing summer we had!  We had hundreds of people join us as guests, ranch hands, and Wrangler volunteers!  Kids and parents alongside grandmas and grandpas of all ages got to work.  From spring arrivals of Nigerian Dwarf babies and fluffy chicks to the excitement of first time riders and returning families, we shared the chores and play together.  The Hope Trail is up and running!  Learning and fun await our guests with numerous interactive stations.  We look forward to sharing the season with you through pictures and stories in our upcoming newsletter.

The horses need hay!  We need help putting up 500 bales of hay this weekend.  Are you available on Monday, September 4th, at 1:00?  Join us for an hour or several.  All ages of Ranch Hands welcome.  Jeans, long sleeves, tennis shoes or boots, and gloves recommended.  (We have some available as well.)  Please let us know you’re coming. Call or text Kaarin at 303-898-5567.
