“Mountain people helping mountain people.” - It’s Who We Were Then And It’s Who We Are Now
Our Patients | Our Family | Our Heart
Our Heart Is in the Home. When Mount Evans was founded in 1980 our motto was “Mountain people helping mountain people.” It’s who we were then and it’s who we are now. Our heart has always been and will always be in the home and with our patients. Our mission is special and there isn’t a day that passes that we don’t realize how lucky we are to know, love and care for the extraordinary people in our mountain community. We also recognize that we couldn’t do what we do without the backing of a remarkable community.
Throughout the next year, we plan to share our stories. We hope to touch your heart in much the same way as our patients touch ours. We also want you to know us and why we do what we do.
Please follow along in Colorado Serenity Magazine, Canyon Courier, Clear Creek Courant and the 285 Hustler as well as our social media pages to learn why Our Heart is in the Home. We think you’ll be inspired.

Unlike a lot of people who move to Colorado, Ray didn’t come here for the mountains, he was far more interested in a therapeutic treasure tucked inside them. A psychological social worker by profession, Ray served as the director of Forest Heights Lodge for 35 years. He dedicated his life’s work and heart to helping boys struggling with emotional, behavioral, academic and social issues.
There are more than 18.2 million Veterans in the United States who have protected and served our country. Of these, more than half, are over the age of 65. There is a growing recognition, both here at Mount Evans and throughout the country, of the need to provide Veteran-centered care to our servicemen and servicewomen.
Richard Cox keeps an envelope in his room. If he didn’t offer to show it to you, you likely wouldn’t notice it. To the unknowing eye, it simply looks like a well-worn envelope. What makes it special is what it holds – a carefully curated collection of extraordinary moments from a life lived with purpose.
