MISSION

Building Hope Summit County is a community-wide initiative designed to create a more coordinate, effective and responsive mental health system that promotes emotional health, reduces stigma and improves access to care and support for everyone in Summit County.


HISTORY

Building Hope was launched in 2016, after several well-known Summit County locals took their own lives. Among these individuals was Patti Casey, a long time and loved Breckenridge residents with deep roots in the community. Patti’s family created the Patti Casey Memorial Fund to provide the initial support for the Building Hope Initiative to honor her life. With the support of the Casey Family, Gini Bradley, a skilled community organizer and The Summit Foundation, a series of large stakeholder meetings were convened to launch this important community effort.  Almost two years later, the effort now includes support from over 25 local agencies and hundreds of local residents.
