The Valor Voice is honored to interview Kari Eckert, co-founder of Robbie’s Hope.
Robbie’s Hope is an organization for teens by teens. Robbie’s Hope honors Robbie Eckert, a Lakewood High School student who took his life in 2018. Since then, his parents and friends have made it their mission to create a safe space for teens to talk about mental health.
Over the last two years, the organization has quickly grown. The teens have created an Adult Handbook and Technology Handbook to help parents and kids navigate tough situations and conversations. Robbie’s Hope has handed out 70,000 of those handbooks.
Valor is focused on cleanup and remediation of unattended deaths, suicides, crime scenes across the Colorado region.
