The Thrive Story
A Model for Success
Our Thriving Community
Thrive is a community-based organization established in 1986. Each year Thrive serves over 7,000 parents, children and community members through our five signature programs.
Thrive provides mentoring, education and support for children and families, so that everyone in our community has the tools they need to be successful. Our proven programs have been developed using evidence-based practices, adapted to meet local community needs, and rigorously evaluated to ensure program efficacy.
Thrive has developed critical community partnerships built on sharing design, implementation, management, evaluation, financial resources, and responsibilities for programs. This approach, which has the success of the child at its center, results in the highest quality services, maximizes scarce resources, and has a powerful impact on outcomes for children.
