MEET THE PEOPLE WHO INSPIRED OUR ORGANIZATION
The Welcome Home Alliance for Veterans, locally known as Welcome Home Montrose, is a grassroots community initiative inspired by the determination and courage of Corporal Todd Love, his father Gary Love, and USMC Sergeant (Retired) Jared Bolhuis. Our goal is to create a “no barriers” community where every veteran of our armed services can thrive in the life they choose.
The western slope has long been known as the base camp for adventure in the Colorado Rockies. There are skiing, ice and rock climbing, hunting, fishing, boating, shooting, hiking and biking activities minutes in any direction. As we learned that outdoor recreation, challenging sports and exploring nature are keys to healing the body and spirit of these recovering veterans, see the video that inspired us, we to share the high quality of life we enjoy here, regardless of what their physical abilities might require. We recognize that Todd and others like him are capable and independent when provided a solid support system and resources as needed. We aim to have that support system as veterans come to make the Western Slope of Colorado their home or vacation destination.
