Thrive 2022 Year in Review

2022 was a BIG year for Thrive and the local kids and families we serve. Thanks to the support of our generous community, we finished renovations on our very own building. We can’t wait to open our doors in 2023 for fun family events, parenting classes, summer camps, 1-on-1 support, and so much more. Continued growth in the Gallatin Valley caused demand for our programs to reach unprecedented levels. Our four signature programs ensured that children had the tools they need to overcome the challenges they face now and in the future. We couldn’t have done it without your steadfast support. On behalf of all of us, thank you for helping our valley thrive!
