Building Hope Summit County’s Background
Building Hope was launched in 2016, after a number of local deaths by suicide in Summit County. Among those who passed was Patti Casey, a long-time and beloved Breckenridge resident with deep roots in the community. To honor her, Patti’s family created the Patti Casey Memorial Fund to provide the initial support for the Building Hope Initiative in honor of Patti’s incredible spirit and kindness and to prevent the loss of others. The organization was initially spearheaded by the first staff member and director, Betsy Casey; community organizer, Gini Bradley; and The Summit Foundation, as well as the Family and Intercultural Resource Center.
Building Hope became it’s own 501(c)(3) in May 2019 and has grown tremendously over the last several years and receives support from Summit County Government, local agencies, and thousands of local residents to improve the overall behavioral health of the community.
If it weren’t for our generous community, we would not have had the funds needed to carry us through the years, the crises, and the new normals we’ve experienced and be there for those who need us most.
