Hayley Suppes, Pikes Peak Development Officer

Where are you from? How long have you lived in Colorado?

I was born in Colorado Springs and moved away to the Western Slope when I was about 12, but I was fortunate to move back four years ago. That makes me a Colorado native living here my whole life.

What brought you to Project Angel Heart?

I had learned about Project Angel Heart from some of my Denver Kiwanis friends that had volunteered and loved everything that Project Angel Heart did for those facing life-threatening illnesses regardless of background and income. When a position opened for the Pikes Peak Region, I was so excited to apply! PAH’s mission aligns perfectly with my goals of cultivating a career rooted in serving others.

What’s your favorite thing to do in or around Colorado Springs?

Colorado Springs has over 9,000 acres of parkland and 500 acres of trails, including world-renowned attractions like Garden of the Gods and the Manitou Incline trail. I am so grateful to live in a community so rich in natural beauty and take advantage of getting outside every chance I get!

If the world were ending tomorrow, what would you eat for your last meal?

There are so many incredible restaurants in Colorado Springs. Still, if it came down to my last meal, I would have to go with an order of every single dumpling from Lucky Dumpling followed by Chef Brother Luck’s divine chocolate Rangoon for dessert!   

What’s been your favorite thing about Project Angel Heart so far? What are you looking forward to?

Having the opportunity to get to know many of our incredible donors and volunteers has been so heartwarming. Each individual and family has a unique story or connection to what we do at Project Angel Heart, and their dedication has inspired me. I’m looking forward to sharing the mission of Project Angel Heart with the community at large so that more people have the opportunity to learn about the impact Project Angel Heart is making in the Pikes Peak region.  

What are you excited about for the future of Project Angel Heart in Colorado Springs? I’m excited to drive fundraising goals and create meaningful connections and partnerships in the community. With stronger collaborations in the Pikes Peak region, PAH will ensure that our impact can grow and serve even more clients!  


Tiana Clark, Colorado Springs Distribution and Volunteer Coordinator

Where are you from? How long have you lived in Colorado?

I am a rare Colorado Springs native – 42 years as of July!

What brought you to Project Angel Heart?

I have always loved volunteering, and while working in the corporate world, I realized I was most happy when we participated in community events. When I decided to change careers, I wanted my work to be more meaningful. I saw the job posting, and it was a perfect fit! After decorating bags for a project, I was already familiar with Project Angel Heart and knew that it would be a good role for me!

What’s your favorite thing to do in or around Colorado Springs?

I love visiting Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. It has such beautiful views, is a great workout, and the best part is feeding the giraffes!

If the world were ending tomorrow, what would you eat for your last meal?

Pho and garlic parmesan chicken wings with chocolate wine

What’s been your favorite thing about Project Angel Heart so far? What are you looking forward to?

I have enjoyed getting to know the volunteers and being able to interact with them. From Saturday morning distribution to drivers to our bag decorators, I meet so many types of people. I am looking forward to getting out in the community again and connecting even more – schools, offices, community events, other nonprofits – all types of places to meet potential new volunteers!

What are you excited about for the future of Project Angel Heart in Colorado Springs?

I am excited that we’ll have more departments in our location and think we’ll build off of one another. I think this will be an opportunity to expand what we are already achieving in the community. We have so much growth potential!

Where are you from? How long have you lived in Colorado?

I claim Wisconsin as my home, but I was born in Colorado Springs and only lived there for a few months. My husband and I have lived in Colorado as of January of 2020.

What brought you to Project Angel Heart?

After graduating in the spring of 2020, I realized what I truly wanted out of life was to help others. I found Project Angel Heart through Colorado’s Nonprofit Association, and after reading their mission statement, I fell in love.

What’s your favorite thing to do in or around Colorado Springs?

I adore paddle boarding on Palmer Lake as it’s so close to the mountains, and you always have a view.

If the world were ending tomorrow, what would you eat for your last meal?

My last meal would be a spread of breakfast foods. I like salty and sweet and like to pair buttermilk waffles with a side of biscuits and gravy.

What’s been your favorite thing about Project Angel Heart so far? What are you looking forward to?

The interactions I have with Project Angel Heart’s clients are extremely rewarding. Hearing their stories and how they came to be on Project Angel Heart’s services always warms my heart, as I can always hear so much gratitude in their voices.

What are you excited about for the future of Project Angel Heart in Colorado Springs?

I’m excited about the possibility of expansion in the springs. I hope to be someday able to say my home in Monument is included in our delivery area.


Twenty percent of the clients Project Angel Heart serves—about 250 people each week—live in the Colorado Springs area. But all the meals are made in the kitchen in Denver… so how do they get where they need to go? Discover the journey.
