“The Family Business Forum and George’s vision has actually kept family businesses together – it’s impacted them. It’s now a signature program of the University [of North Carolina Asheville], and the University is better for it. And I would say the overall economy here in Western North Carolina is better for the insight that George Groome had.”

“Now more than ever, you need to believe that what’s within you is stronger than what’s in your way. This guiding principle enables No Barriers USA to help North Carolina disabled Veterans redefine their identity, purpose, and community as they face past and present challenges on a 5-day Back Country Expedition in Pisgah National Forest. These brave men and women stretch physical and emotional boundaries, foster camaraderie, push through adversity, and step up to serve others. Thanks to the generous support of Colton Groome Financial, these transformative, life-changing experiences are completely FREE to Veterans.”
