ABOUT WHAV-The Welcome Home Alliance for Veterans (WHAFV) began as a grassroots, community initiative in 2011, to help medically-discharged military veterans through its targeted programs and dedicated Warrior Resource Center (WRC) at 11 South Park Avenue.  Today, WHAFV continues to be a groundbreaking community resource center for local veterans, while expanding into an all-inclusive and comprehensive source of support for military veterans and their families across Western Colorado.  The organization is not-for-profit, volunteer-based, donation and small grant funded, reliant on community and business partnerships and is entirely independent of the government.


ABOUT BANK OF COLORADO: The communities we’re a part of make us who we are. That started back in 1900 and continues today. As one of the oldest banks in Colorado, our first charter was issued in Ft. Lupton. While the name of the bank may have changed throughout the years, our genuine approach has always been the same. In 1978, we became a part of a larger family of local banks started by the Dinsdale family during the Great Depression. The economic hardships took their toll on the people and the banks in Palmer, Nebraska. So brothers George and Tom Dinsdale, along with some friends, decided to do something. They pulled their resources together to open a bank for their community. They ran their bank much like they ran their farms, which helped them earn people’s trust. So it didn’t take long before they were ready to reach out to other towns and states, including Colorado. Today, Bank of Colorado serves communities throughout the Eastern Plains, the Front Range, the Western Slope and the Four Corners Region. Although we’ve grown, we still greet you by name and answer our calls in person. Banking has changed a lot over the years, but you’ll find our people are still cut from the same cloth as our founders. We’re not just a bank in Colorado. We’re Bank of Colorado.
